“Maybe the only free show in Barcelona?!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

It is very well located with the museum facing it and city is at the back, wide open space & plenty of people gather without annoyance to see the water show, pleasant and entertaining.

You should go there at least once afternoon when the sun goes down. Not only turists, also locals with children!
