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.

  • It doesn't look like it but I'd say it's a really cool ride! By the history and beauty of the fountain... It is worth waiting to see all the moves that make them, take the time to enjoy and relax with the fountain that is stunning...

  • the music is well audible at the bottom, but the view is better from above, and inexpensively you can buy costaniets and vers!) - next to the subway.
