From Plaça del Doctor Andreu you can take the funicular up to the top of the Tibidabo and the PARC D’ATRACCIONS TIBIDABO (111). (TIBIDABO FUNFAIR). The Tibidabo Funfair of Barcelona, opened in 1899 by doctor Salvador Andreu, is one of the three oldest in the world. Its magnificent location, in a natural environment where engineering gems of great historical value -the so-called “emblematic rides”- are found side-by-side with state-of-the-art installations and startling shows, make this one of the most representative leisure spots in Barcelona. The emblematic fairground attractions include the Avió (Aeroplane), which is part of the city’s collective memory, and the Museu d’Autòmats (Automaton Museum), housed in a former theatre dating from 1909. The automaton collection includes pieces from all over the world and some fifty automatons from the early 20th century, some of which are considered to be Modernista. Many of them still work; they range from coin-operated dolls that were once a common sight at fairs throughout Europe, to mechanical games and toys with which the children of the bourgeoisie of the time used to amuse themselves. The museum’s collection is regarded as one of the best in the world, particularly because of the good condition of many of the items, some of which are currently being restored.
