The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, created by the architect, engineer and lighting technician Carles Buigas, 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.
