“Free fantastic show!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

A must see in Barcelona, just close to Olimpic Park and Art Museum. From Thursday to Sunday, from 9pm to 11pm, every half-hour, a beautiful show of music and colors. Best: all free!!!

“A must see when in Barcelona”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

While in Barcelona you must see the Magic Fountain, very relaxing after a busy day of touring. The music is contemporary and the show is amazing. We enjoyed it very much

“WOW! We loved this.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Well done Barcelona.... this is a special place to visit and a wonderful spectacle to see. Thank you. We had spent a very long and tiring but great day at the Grand Prix and half wondered about not bothering to walk the two miles to see the fountains later that night.... BUT thank goodness we did. A beautiful sight and free! Lots of people watching too. Heartily recommended.

“Amazing free attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

This is an amazing attraction that is free, we even went back a second time! Amazing setting underneath the MNAC and looking out to Plaza Espanya. Try to get early to get a good seat (30mins). Try to get a seat below the MNAC for the best view, otherwise stand at the road looking toward fountain with MNAC in the background. The music is great and the display itself is incredible. The 'Locals' are always there selling beer for €1 to help you settle in. A must visit in Barcelona for a couple or friends. Check times and days on website as it changes seasonally.

“Very Enjoyable and Worth the Trip Across town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

We quite enjoyed this attraction and the area it is in certainly feels safer than other areas in the city.

The colours are great and the fountain display itself is respectably varied.

The only complaint I can really bring against it is that the audio system for the music is inconsistent and patchy with unexpected fade outs during songs. Also most of the music pieces are not played in their entirely but more as a medley, something I personally find annoying.
