This is one of the must see’s of Barcelona and the sad thing is many people never get to hear about this spectacular free show in one of the most picturesque areas of the city. The show is an all year round spectacle and runs from Thursday to Sunday in the summer and Friday and Saturday in the winter.
Every evening coaches rolled up in a well orchestrated convoy bring 1000s of visitors from all over the world to see the “aurora borealis of Barcelona” The emotive blend of classical music and impressive multi-shaped cascades of water which dance through all of the colours of the rainbow is the perfect expression of Barcelona.
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.
