SarriГ -Sant Gervasi is located in the northwestern part of Barcelona and is the wealthiest district of the city to date. Several neighbourhoods within SarriГ twice exceed the average income index across Barcelona: SarriГ -Sant Gervasi has the highest wealth index even compared to Les Corts and Pedralbes.
The district is quite large, as it encompasses the Collserola mountains and the mountain of Tibidabo. Due to its size, it is divided into six administrative units: SarriГ ; les Tres Torres; Sant Gervasi- la Bonanova; el Putxet i el Farro; Sant Gervasi- Galvany; and Vallvidrera, el Tibidabo i les Planes. The district limits are defined by Collserola in the north, Via Augusta, Avinguda PrГncep d'AstГєries and Avinguda de Vallcarca in the east, Carrer de Bosch i GГmpera in the west, and Avinguda Diagonal in the south.
Apart from its wealthy residences, SarriГ is best-known for the mountain of Tibidabo and the namesake amusement park located on its top. Tibidabo is the oldest functioning amusement park in the city and still retains three of its iconic original rides. Tibidabo also has the Temple de Sagrat Cor, a church akin to the Sacre Coeur cathedral in Paris, designed by Enric Sagnier and built by his son Josep Maria Sagnier i Vidal.
The other part of SarriГ -Sant Gervasi, namely Vallvidrera, is better known locally as a great place to go cycling thanks to the leisure path running through the Collserola mountain, which begins at the west side of the district and continues towards Tibidabo. The path is used both by pedestrians and cyclists, and is much loved for the spectacular views of Barcelona on any given day. The path is relatively even and is suitable for most fitness levels.
