The magic fountains of Montjuïc are exactly what they sound like… magical!
I have to admit that the first time I visited the Magic Fountain I was pretty skeptical. I mean, let’s face it, an illuminated fountain that changes color in time to music sounds…well, pretty cheesy if you ask me… but that couldn’t be any further away from what it’s actually like.
The Magic Fountain of Montjuic is actually an incredibly impressive display of water , colorful lights and music ranging from classical to modern hits. The show is a spectacular display of color, light, motion, music and water…. and when they mixed these elements it was absolutely stunning!
Not only the fountains themselves magical, but the whole area (Plaza Espanya) is magnificent. As you walk through the beautiful Torres Venecianes (Venetian Towers) looking towards Montjuïc, you are greeted by the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC).
This is definitely a must see when you’re in Barcelona…. and the best part is… it’s completely free!
I have been to the Magic Fountain show more times than I can count. Here are some more photos and videos give you an idea just how magical these fountains are!
