We visited at the last minute and were glad we did. Lots of lights, colour and spectacular show with accompanying music. If you go between October and May it is on Friday and Saturday every half hour between 7 and 9pm. Please be sure not to miss it

We went to watch this on a Saturday evening arrived about 6.50 ready for it to start at 7. It was lovely well worth a visit the art museum at the top looks like something out of Aladdin. Beautiful views from the top overlooking the fountains.

A must see at night. Awesome music, impressive fountain dancing (or whatever you would call it) , fun atmosphere and a nice place to chill after a day of walking around the city. Take a bit of picnic and enjoy.

Font Magica exceeded my expectations with its wonderful colors and music. We arrived a little early and had great a view of the show.

We stumbled upon this one night on our holiday, and it was a spectacle! Beautiful music and lights! I loved every bit of it. I wish the music had been clearer and the event better advertised. It's really something you cannot miss!

This is a must on your trip to Barcelona. Lovely to either just sit there and be mesmerised by the playing fountain and the lovely music, or wander up and down the whole fountain and pools area above it. Fantastic

What a lovely lit show of the dancing fountain. It lasts for about 15 minutes, which point you have pretty much seen the full repertoire of what it can do. It is however an excellent starting point for a walk through the park.

It's in the name, it is amazing! Didn't get to see the night show however once we got to the top had a drink and looked at the view u get taken away. We were lucky enough to see the fountains on during the day and wow

A lovely experience. Sit in the middle set of steps for a good view where you will not get wet! Unfortunately didn't see it at it's best due to the light evening and having to catch last tour bus back to hotel.

What can I say? LOL A not to be missed part of any trip to this beautiful City! Freddie warbling away while you watch the fountains of an evening. What could be better? Lots of crowds (Even in early April) but Free :)
