Plaza del Tibidabo, 3-4, 08035 Barcelona
You're thinking: Hey, that looks like the Sacré-Cœur de Montmartre church in Paris? You're not completely wrong. In fact, the Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor (Catalan for Atonement Temple of the Sacred Heart) was designed according to its French model.
The construction of this church began in 1902 and lasted 60 years until its completion. The impressive statue of Christ, which looks out over the city with outstretched arms, crowns the church and lies on top of Mount Tibidabo. You can get to a platform below the statue and enjoy impressive views of Barcelona from there. At night, the church is beautifully lit and is visible from almost any point in the city.
The entrance to the church is free, but if you are already there I would definitely invest the 2 € to take the lift to the viewing platform below the statue of Jesus. From there you can enjoy a unique view over the entire province of Barcelona, but have a look for yourself ...
Opening hours and church services:
- Use of the lift from 10.30 am to 7.00 pm
- Catalan services 08.00 am to 10.00 am | 11.00 am to 12.00 pm | 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm
