Magic Fountain (Font Magica), Barcelona
(4.4/5 based on 19,000+ 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Very beautiful fountain, that by evening becomes the centre of water and light show... red, yellow, blue, green, all colours mixed together to the music and to many different water effects.
  • Beautiful historical part of Barcelona. Very good exhibition, and excellent 360degree view of the city. Worth the (bike)trip !
