Barcelona's second landmark hill is Tibidabo, about four miles
(6km) northwest of the city in a wooded range that forms a backdrop
to the city. Tibidabo can be reached by funicular, and is
particularly popular on weekends with locals because it is home to
the Parc d'Atraccions, an amusement park with some thrill rides and
a renowned house of horrors. Tibidabo also features the soaring
Torre de Collserola telecommunications tower, which offers visitors
the chance to ride in a glass lift to an observation platform 377
feet (115m) high to enjoy a spectacular view. There is also a
large, interesting church called Temple del Sagrat Cor surmounted
by a giant Christ statue, which also offers a lift to a rooftop

trading hours and days during summer.
