To arrive, you can take Tramvia Blau (blue tram), the only tram now in the city and the funicular one that will take you to the summit.

The mount is the highest point in the Sierra of Collserola at about 532 meters above sea level. The Park of Attractions, dating from 1908, but continually renovated, are the Expiatory Temple of the Sacred Heart from 1902-1911 and the Tower of Collserola, or Tower of Telecommunications built by Norman Foster in 1992, with a height 268 meters. They can be seen from many points of the city. On one of those mythical clear days you can see across to Montserrat and the Pyrenees, and out to sea even as far as Mallorca. All around there are pleasant walks through the woods.
