Montjuic Park Magic Fountain
Font Màgica de Montjuic
The Magic Fountain of Montjuic (Font Màgica de Montjuic in Catalan), was inspired by the engineer Carles Buigas, which incorporated elements such as the changing forms of water.
The fountain is located on a raised platform, halfway towards the National Palace, headquarters of the MNAC museum. After the Civil War, there was incorporated the music to the visual spectacle and modernized its facilities.
Nowadays, the Magic Fountain of Montjuic, offers a water show, with music and colors, sometimes accompanied by fireworks, if you are visiting Barcelona, as being in an area so communicated as Spain Square (Plaça d’Espanya), you should not overlook it under any circumstances.
The shows are usually late in the afternoon or evening. If you are planning to attend to its shows, it is a municipal fountain, so there are free. Have a look at the Town Hall website and consult the days and hours of the shows, as these are not everyday.
