4.4/5 based on 18,000+ reviews on the web
No ordinary water fountain, Magic Fountain (Font Magica) 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.

  • Perfect place to visit and take a walk. Wait for the sources are switched on and contemplate the spectacle of lights and music is worth.

  • Read about in guide book. Great atmosphere and enjoyed are evening here and found a nice bar a little distance away 
  • We had the wrong time when the show started. Boring to wait 1.20 hours. Then there was how powerful any sin that the music was not higher, it had made the spectacle even cooler.

  • Beautiful! Amazing light show with the water moving in time with the music. Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion nearby.
  • Yes, it is worth the wait for 2 hours if it is a Fire, Pyro, and Fountain show. I went during the Le Mercè Festival and it is one of those moments that will forever be in my happy memories.
  • Great free show! Normally you will ear "Barcelona" from Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé as the first song and there is where you realise your feet are on a magical city. Seeing all the water move, with all kinds of colours in a choreography to this song.. absolutely awesome! Plus it's free!
  • Come here for the Magic Fountain show. The show is held on specific days depending on the time of the year. It is quite impressing. The show is held after sunset, you can see the water illuminated and choreographed to music playing in the background. It is free to all to watch. Come early to get a good spot, but dont get too close. Any gust of wind might result in you getting wet.
  • A great place with high views of the city and placa espana. The fountain is supposed to have Ana amazing light show at night but we weren't able to make it. The views during the day are just as amazing.
