Magic Fountain (Font Magica), Barcelona

(20,000+ reviews on the web)
Fountain
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.

  • Walking from plaza Spain sources and then go Montjuïc is a quote in the boat. The beauty of the place is worth to be visited

  • Barcelona really is a city that everyone falls in love. The tour of the Font Magica de Montjuïc is spectacular. Come around 20:10 of the night to get a good seat and wait until the 21:00. Show the open and free

  • Beautiful site. Beautiful fountain. Must see in Barcelona. I initially wasn't sure how a fountain can be so famous, but once you see it live, there isn't quite anything to compare this to. It rises high, has great colors, is majestic to look at, and is in front of a large stone staircase that rises to a massive castle. All this while music is playing in the background. Every view is a beautiful site, whether in front of it or looking down from the castle.
  • So much fun. After living for 2 years in Barcelona, I finally went to see the Magic Fountain and it was lovely. Beautiful, mesmerizing and set different music each time you go. Definitely will bring all my visitors here from now on!
  • Great place for a fountain like this. It is good to be earlier to choose best spot during the show. In the time of the show there is a lot of people. The show is spectacular. The wather is spiting out very high in the rythm of different kinds of music. Very beautiful !
  • Without hyperbole, this is the most impressive fountain I've ever seen. It's got quite a preprogrammed show in it, and it does things with water texture that I never thought I'd get to see. There are times when it creates a low ring of fog and then resolves into an amazing, towering display. Really recommend stopping by, especially if you're on your way to the National Art Museum.
  • Beautiful sound and lights fountain show. Non stop from 7 To 8.30 pm. You can stand at a distance and enjoy the show. This way u can also click lovely pictures! The area is surrounded with beautiful maple trees and lots of stairs to sit too. You can spend some good time with family.
