The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc

Type: 
Shows

The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc is the main element of a series of cascades and fountains which extends from the museum MNAC (National Art Museum of Catalunya) to the Plaza Espanya. It is called magical because of its water, light and music show.

It was built in 1929 for the World Exhibition as a water and light show and in the 80s, the music was incorporated. From this source flow 2600 liters per second in a circulatory system, which will, if necessary, be fed by the water that comes from the ground water reservoir of the Montjuïc hill.

Hi
We are visiting Barcelona on a cruise on Tuesday 6th of August 2019, we would like to see the magic fountain.
I realise the sound and light show won’t be operating on that day, is it still worth going to see the fountain?

Hello Linsey,

You are right, the Magic Fountains are not operating on Tuesday. The area is also a tourist attraction, so it deserve a visit, but if you are visiting the city for a few hours you have to choose what do you prefer. Montjuïc is an open area, with parcs, Museums... sport installations. Around the Magic Fountain you can visit (MNAC museum or CaixaForum) and also, in Plaza Espanya there is a shopping center called Arenas de Barcelona, which has a viewpoint. From there and also from the MNAC you can have nice views of the city.

We hope you have a nice stay in Barcelona!

Dear Dean,
Thank you for your comment. In fact, despite you could read 2103 the information was of the 2015. Now is updated.
Concerning to your question, for the moment there is no information about special sessions on the 25th and 26th. We will publish it as soon as we know it.
