The location is ideal as it´s 2 minutes from the Ronda de Barcelona, 10 minutes from the airport, and near the best international schools in the city. The street is highly sought after as it is revered as architecturally historic. Tibidabo Avenue was conceived of in 1897 by Doctor Andreu, who had dreamt of an elegant garden city in which powerful families could build their private mansions. The idea was to get away from the grids of the Eixample and from neighbors and factories and breathe the pure mountain air on Tibidabo.
