get there early so you can grab a beverage and a chair-hundreds of people gathered to few "dancing waters"-relaxing and easy to get to by cab-

The Magic Fountain is absolutely incredible. The show lasts for about 30 minutes and won't cost you anything as long as you are aware of pickpockets (big problem in Barcelona). You can protect yourself best by putting all money and passports in a neck pouch tucked inside your trousers. This is well worth many photos. I prefer to travel with a small digital camera (mine is a new Panasonic) that takes pictures with the clarity of an expensive camera. The fountain changes colors and shape constantly. Breathtaking!

Amazing and free!!! After a long day walking around the magnificent city of Barcelona, go straight to "Palau Nacional" to enjoy the magic fountain. Nothing more relaxing than this, especially during the summer. We had visited it on Sunday, between 21:00-23:00, maybe there is a schedule, but you can ask nearby. This is an absolutely must see spectacle in Barcelona!!!

While it's not on as large a scale as the musical fountains at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, but it's a lovely show to watch one night in Barcelona. It's very popular so there's a large crowd and the Plaza Espanya is a beautiful venue. The musical fountains are a beautiful (and free!) show.

really sweet and fun idea, the water looks like it's dancing to the music in the backround with beautiful colors. starts everynight from 21:00, nice to go and watch for a while and then go grab a bite a tapa tapa right next to it and the espanya square.
