Tibidabo provides nostalgic appeal for several generations of locals and visitors because of its downright charming retro rides—a carousel, an “airplane” that spins around a pole, whirling teacups—along with modern attractions like a roller coaster, a pirate ship, and a haunted castle. A family visit can be fairly expensive, but you may be able to limit costs by focusing on the Panoramic Area of the park and the adjacent 255m (837-ft.) communications tower, Torre de Collserola, a 1992 Olympics structure by Norman Foster, with its observation deck.
