A colourful fountain display similar to the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas, the Magic Fountain of Montjuic first spouted in 1929 during the Great Universal Exhibition.  It features 3,620 jets capable of creating all sorts of different formations and beautiful lighted patterns.

The magic fountain of Montjuïc's first performance was on May 19, 1929 during the Great Universal Exhibition. The designer Carles Buigas submitted his plans one year before the exhibition and many thought that the project was too ambitious to be created, let alone completed on time. Over 3000 workers were commissioned to work on the project and less than 1 year later the magic fountain was born. The magic fountain is a spectacular display of colour, light, motion, music and water acrobatics - if you mix all these elements together in just the right combinations, you end up with pure magic! The magic fountain is a "must see" when you come to Barcelona and highly recommended.

I have never seen that before or after - a magic fountain! But it is truly amazing - the spectacular display of colour, light, motion, music and water acrobatics! I seen it on a special opening event of a fashion exhibition and I was surprised. It was just too nice to watch the water acrobatics while the colors changed and listing to the music... You have to see this! Its not everyday and the times for fountain change seasonal. Don't miss it!

Amazing, I don't have words to describe the experience of watching the fountain. I was lucky to watch a sunset there too. Arrive before 8:30 to get a good place, grab some beers at any markets near the subway before getting there.
