Jesus on top of Church of the Sacred Heart (Tibidabo).

The Tibidabo Mountain rises 512m above sea level and is the highest peak of the Collserola Sierra overlooking Barcelona. From Tibidabo you have amazing views of the whole city as well as abundant natural scenery that contrasts with its interesting buildings: the famous Tibidabo Amusement Park, the majestic Church of the Sacred Heart (Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón in Spanish / Sagrat Cor in Catalan) and the modern Collserola Tower designed by architect Sir Norman Foster.

The construction of the Church of the Sacred Heart (Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón) began in 1902 by Enric Sagnier and took over 60 years to complete.

At the top of the Tibidabo church a statue of Christ built by Josep Miret Llopart overlooks the city of Barcelona.
