Sagrado Corazon de Jesus, Tibidabo, Barcelona

This church is located on the Tibidabo Mountain in the outskirts of Barcelona. In de foreground, you see a small historic carnival fair. The church has two levels with beautiful ceilings and paintings. On top of the highest tower, Jesus is looking down over Barcelona.

The ground level has a circular construction and is rather small. Going to the second elevation level, you find an enormous church. The day we were at Tibidabo, there was a procession to celebrate the jubilee of mercy. It was very crowded.

De kerk is gelegen op de Tibidabo berg aan de rand van Barcelona. Op de voorgrond zie je een kleine antieke kermis. De kerk is opgebouwd op twee niveaus met prachtige plafonds en schilderwerken. Bovenop de hoogste toren kijkt Jezus naar beneden over de stad Barcelona. 

De beneden kerk (kapel) heeft een cirkelvormige constructie en is relatief klein. Op het tweede verdiep vind je een enorme kerk. De dag van ons bezoek was er een processie ter eer van het Jubileum van de Barmhartigheid. Het was er heel druk.

  1. These are outstanding pictures! Picture six is truly art, and my favorite. Although they are all just wonderful! Jesus looking over a carnival!! Now to your first picture. The contrast between the gorgeous old church and the colorful modern carnival is truly amazing. I used to think carnivals were pretty till seeing this. Modern man made cannot touch the work or the house of God.

  2. Prachtig om te zien, vooral die gebrandschilderde ramen. Het is werkelijk een imposant bouwwerk.

  4. The stained glass windows are all beautiful. Even though it was crowded you managed to avoid or carefully crop out the people to give a sense of peace.
