This was our first time in Barcelona and this was such a surprise! I knew about the magic fountain but I honestly thought 'it's just another water fountain' and because my expectations were so low, I was even more amazed! There is so many people gathering around the fountain, and there is dancing and music. Besides the pretty colours of the fountain, the view was amazing. By far the best view I have ever seen. If you go all the way to the top near the museum, you can see Barcelona at night and a clear view of the fountain. I just wish there were more restaurants so we could sit down, eat and enjoy the atmosphere even more than we did!

A great display- very impressive- it's not only the amazing waterfall display set to dramatic classical music that took my breath away- it was the entire setting. You walk up a long avenue with fountains all the way up and can see the lights and water of the font magica from afar with the most amazing backdrop of their beautiful art museum which looks like a palace. Go right up close to the water for best atmosphere- it's crowded but everyone in great form and great buzz. Every single age appeared to love it.

During the summer the show is on from 9-11:30 Thurs-Sun. Get the red or green line to plaça Espanya.

We've probably all seen fountains with colorful lights, set to music but this is something else. My partner and I popped along to see it, expecting to only spend about half an hour there and we ended up staying for a couple of hours. Each show is different so they all seem to follow each other very nicely. The perfect way to end a day in Barcelona.

We reached to find the roads lined with tourist buses. There were well over 100 buses lining one side of the street, the fountain was on, the backdrop grand and, as it got dark the lights came on and we realized why it's called the Magic Fountain.'

The lighting from the fountain is great, the music is great, and the cool splashes of water sometimes (if you are standing near) under a darkening cool night is awesome. You can choose to either sit and quietly enjoy the show, or stand and dance like many others!
