In the early twentieth century, the prominent Doctor Andreu developed the construction of this elegant avenue in the upper part of Barcelona, starting between the Rotonda and Tamarita Park (Plaça Kennedy) and ending up at the foot of Tibidabo Mountain.
The Avenida Tibidabo was inspired by the great avenues of Paris, with glamorous private mansions surrounded by gardens on both sides, only affordable by the wealthiest families of the city. An absolutely unique and singular urbanism in a setting surrounded by nature and with panoramic views of the city, absolutely different with regard to the prevailing type of urbanism at that time (the Eixample and industrial areas).
The best architects of the early twentieth century took part in the development of the Avenida, architects such as Josep Puig i Cadafalch, Joan Rubio i Bellvé, Enric Sagnier or Adolf Ruiz Casamitjana rivaled each other in their projects using all kind of ornamental richness, and all sort of styles: Art Nouveau, Neo-Gothic, medievalist, neocolonial and novecento style.
After more than 100 years, this elegant Avenida Tibidabo has not changed its appearance, keeping even intact the same tram (Tramvia Blau) running the 1,276 meters from Plaça Kennedy to Plaça del Doctor Andreu..
The original properties of the Avenida Tibidabo are listed and included in the architectural heritage of the city of Barcelona.
