Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on Tibidabo

Neo-Gothic church of the Sacred Heart of Tibidabo, the temple that dominates Barcelona
Author: Cristian Atudoroae (Barcelona Pictures)
The Expiatory Church of Sagrat Cor, work of the Catalan architect Enric Sagnier i Villavecchia completed by his son Josep Maria Sagnier i Vidal, is located on top of Mount Tibidabo. By design, location and name reminds us the Parisian church of Sacré Coeur.
Built between 1902 and 1961, the temple is formed by a lower crypt with walled appearance and the monumental upper church, neo-Gothic. The three-nave church is is square in shape, with the central nave covered with an octagonal dome. In the main altar stands out the large crucifix, a work by Joan Puigdollers. The top consists of a large central tower crowned by the image of the Sacred Heart and four smaller towers.
Inside there is a lift which for a fee allows access to the top of the temple. From there you can enjoy magnificent panoramic views.

Highlights
The crypt, designed in a neo-Byzantine style, combining Gothic and classical elements, and decoration close to Modernisme.
