The Magic Fountains of Montjuïc – Barcelona, Spain

Categories Barcelona

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!

  2. I’ve been to Barcelona twice now and seen quite a lot of the city but I never made it to Montjuic! There’s so much to see there. Incredible photos and videos of the fountains!

  3. I have only visited Barcelona ona school trip and the fountains were not part of our itinerary. I would love to go back to Barcelona and see it again as a more grown up than I was then 😀 It’s a beautiful city and I remember I loves its vibe.

  4. That looks like a nice show they put up there! I can imagine that you were sceptical at first, these kind of fountains can be quite underwhelming. But this one looks beautiful 🙂

  5. Lovely photos and videos!! I was blown away by the fountains, much more than I was expecting. It was amazing how many people turned up each night to see the show, it reminded me of a New Year’s Eve in Sydney harbour! Thanks for sharing 🙂
