This is beautiful at night - great for a chill night outdoors. Not a must see but it's amazing if you do :)

I hadn't seen a "dancing" fountain decorated with changing lights yet, so this was definitely entertaining. It starts at 9pm, but there's no need to be there punctually (unless for some reason you want to be standing really up close; I sincerely doubt that will...More

Get there early to find a place to sit and watch a beautiful show of the very colourful fountains. Location is well surrounded by lovely cafes and restaurants. Well worth a visit.

The fountain is a great location when meeting up with others or your tour guide. It is a lovely fountain with a great deal of history and art surrounding the water feature.

What a beautiful show! You do get a "little" wet if you get too close to the fountains. It's good to get there a little earlier and sit on stairs in back. Afterwards walked over to Plaza Espagna for a great meal.

The fountain offers a very beautiful show. A very pleasant atmosphere is created around it. I recommend you find a good place to enjoy the show. You must arrive at least one hour before. I recommend visiting this tourist destination.

The most amazing fountain I've ever seen in my life. We were there two nights in a row and it was just magical! The show lasted for one our and the colors were mesmerizing. Go early to get a good spot!
