Tibidabo

Tibidabo is a hill overlooking Barcelona, Catalonia. There is an amusement park and a Catholic church at the top, which can be reached by a funicular railway.

It is so called from the Bible verse Haec omnes tibi dabo et cadens adoraberis me -- All this I will give you if you fall down and worship me, said to Jesus by Satan as they looked down from a mountain upon the riches of the world. It is a reference to the view.
