Owner description: A combination display of water, music and light which was originally built in 1929. It was restored in 1992 and provides a spectacular show every half hour.
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We had read on the website that they would be having a music and light display on the Thursday of Easter week. Many others though the the same thing. The fountains actually shut down and we wondered if this might be the precursor to the 'show'...but 7pm came and went. So, we left. But, we returned the next evening and the fountains were alive with colour. The music could have been a bit louder as it was difficult to hear it (could have been where we were standing). It's not something that I would make a point of seeing on each trip to Barcelona, but would definitely recommend seeing the display of lights and colour if it's your first time to the city. Note: very easy to get to via metro.

To complete a day at the Olympic village and the MNAC art museum, the view from the fountain is amazing. Top it off with a display of mountain bikes held on the specific weekend, with shows from World champions. The only down-side of the fountain is that the light display is only on specific hours and days, and doesn't always match the hours that we were in the area.

A beautiful water display with an equally beautiful backdrop the Palau National. The fountain display is every half hour starting at 7:00 when we were there in March - on Friday and Saturday nights.

We thought the changing colours of the dancing fountains spectacular, and the playing of 'Barcelona' at end of show great for Freddie Mercury fans. Watch out for people selling flying light sticks. They're probably OK, but could distract you whilst a pickpocket gets to work. Well worth a visit.

The magic fountain(as expected) was lighted up by colorful lights and some Disney music were played. However it was a bit dull and music wasnt load enough imo. Nonetheless it's a good place to visit cause its really romantic. Go earlier to "book" a good view as loads of people even locals rush in to see it too! :)
