If you walk in the upper part of Barcelona, Tramvia Blau (blue tram) is one of the typical things that will allow us to make a beautiful photo.
The Tramvia Blau dates back to 1901 and is the only survivor of Barcelona’s old tram line. It carries out a route of 1,276 meters in ascension toward the foot of the funicular of the Tibidabo. It goes up surrounded by modernist and novecentist constructions that give way to nature and magnificent views of the city.
To get there, one of the best options if you are visiting Barcelona is with one of the stops of the Barcelona Bus Turístic, as in the Blue Line has its own stop: Tramvia Blau – Tibidabo. If you prefer to approach by bus, you can do it with the lines V15, 22, 75, 131 and 196.
In spite of being old, the Tramvia Blau has maintained all its essence; Thus, its current route remains the same as in its time: from the place of John F. Kennedy – where is the railway stop Tibidabo- to the foot of the Funicular of the Tibidabo.
For this reason, almost all the people who catch it do so to get to the foot of Funicular; However, it is also a very good option to stop at some of the stops that leave us alongside spectacular bars and terraces with views such as the Mirablau (or its neighboring Miravé restaurant) .
