Magic Fountain of Montjuic (Fonte màgica de Montjuïc)

Font Màgica del Montjuïc - Magic fountain of Montjuic

The Magic Fountain is a must visit attraction of Barcelona. Its evening shows are a spectacular display of colour, light, motion, music and water acrobatics. Even when the show is off, the fountain is still impressive and its surroundings extravagant. Built on the slopes of Montjuïc hill, at the foot of the Palau Nacional, the fountain is surrounded by the pavilions of the Barcelona Fair and other monumental buildings, sculptures and lush park, and overlooking the equally monumental Plaça d’Espanya.

Tip: Check the show times (link in Venue info below) in advance if you come on your own, or you might miss the show.

Built for the Universal Exposition of 1929, it took over 3000 workers a year to complete this extravagant fountain!
