Magic Fountain (Font Magica), Barcelona

4.4
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.

  • We were told that he was free and we pay 10 euros to rely on expectations. The service was very slow and the calçots dan michimos farts, it was not so. We pay 10 euros for dipping bread

  • Heard about this place but what I was told didn't do it justice. The crowds were amazing and it really is a must see on a visit here. Plenty of public transport to help you get here too. Definitely needs to be put on places to see list for any visitor to Barcelona. Top notch.
  • Very cool, well worth catching the show. It lasts about 30 minutes and is very cool to watch. The opening Queen song Barcelona has s cheesy but in a cool way. Highly recommend checking it out one evening if your in Barcelona, get there early so you can get a good spot, best place to watch is on one of the bridges.
