Making its way up Avinguda del Tibidabo, the Blue Tram invites you to climb Tibidabo as people did at the start of the 20th century.

  • Unusual transport

A centennial means of transport

The famous Tramvia Blau went into service in 1901, at the same time as the Tibidabo funicular opened. This historical tramline runs all the way up Avinguda del Tibidabo, a distance of one and a half kilometres, linking Plaça J.F. Kennedy at the bottom with Plaça del Doctor Andreu at the top. The line passes between the characteristic Modernista and Noucentista mansions of this elegant avenue and takes you to the funicular station for the train that climbs Tibidabo.

Service suspended from February 2018 to modernize the infraestructure.

A landscaped avenue

The Tramvia Blau was the idea of Dr Andreu, a pharmacist and very influential member of the Catalan bourgeoisie at the start of the 20th century, who wanted to turn this area into a big landscaped avenue. He was also behind the Tibidabo Amusement Park. This is the only surviving tram of this period in Barcelona that you can still use and it invites you to climb the hill and enjoy the natural surroundings as the Barcelona folk of old did, at the pace of a none-too-distant past.
