The Magic Fountain, Barcelona

4.2
No ordinary water fountain, The Magic Fountain is an unusual combination of light shows and music performances repeated several times throughout the evening. Like most of the surrounding structures, the fountain was designed for the 1929 World Exposition. The massive building project employed over 3,000 workers. Severely damaged during the Spanish Civil War, the fountain did not operate again until 1955, when it was finally repaired and reopened. Today, the fountain is one of the more emblematic structures in this part of the city, mesmerizing long-time residents and visiting tourists with its 15-minute evening spectacles and frequent fireworks displays.

  • A founain is really great! Little bit problematic to see because of many people around. But atmosphere is fantastic. The music, lights and a founains was transferred us to some different magic place.....  more »
  • Not as extravagant as the Bellagio or Burk Khalifa fountain shows, but a really lovely thing to do nonetheless. Do bear in mind though, if it’s windy, you will get wet. Possibly very wet.  more »
