Tibidabo


    It's latin - tibi dabo (To you, I give). Apparently, some historical dude (the Jesus bloke) was tempted by the devil at this place. Upon looking at Barcelona, which didn't look much in those days, The dude, laughed and asked what one could do with that. Sometime later, some other dude took all this stuff very very seriously, and built a two layer church on the spot. Later still, people took it less seriously and built an amusement park to tempt barcs up from the town below.

    When I was there, the funicular was shut down to keep the tourists away, and the only temptation I sucumbed to was photographic.

The church...

The View...

This cat looked all nice, but then, bit me - probably because I was failing to stroke it in precisely the way it wanted.
