Description

The Tibidabo Cathedral del Sagrat Cor looks down on Barcelona from the city’s tallest peak, Mount Tibidabo. It has a really spectacular location, it can be seen from all over the city. Especially when you are walking up Rambla Catalunya or Passeig de Gracia, you will always find Tibidabo Cathedral on the horizon. Tibidabo cathedral has been designed by architect Enric Sagnier i Villavecchia. Construction started in 1902 and was finally completed by the architect’s son Josep Maria Sagnier i Vidal in 1961. The architectural style of Tibidabo Cathedral can be described as a mixture of modernista and neogothic. To many people it shows similarity to the basilica de Sacre-Coeur in Paris or the Sacro Cuore di Gesu in Rome. When you are approaching the cathedral from the Tibidabo funicular station, you are entering at the level of the crypt.
