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.

The fountains are definitely a tourist attraction but they are amazing. Be careful though if you stand too close you will get wet. It is absolutely beautiful and only takes 15 minutes to watch. They play every Thursday-Sunday from 9-11 but you only stay for one of the shows because they just repeat the same show. A must see in Barcelona!

Amazing fountain show, in sync with the variety of music, fantastic display and free for all in front of the beautiful Museu Nacional d'Art! Highly recommended

It is free - so make sure you go. Just keep your bags close by because it is really busy (we went on a Saturday night) and when you are distracted I am sure pick pockets must thrive.

Jump in a taxi and make sure you see this show, it's well worth the fare and the trip. The circa 30 min show is spectacular and I'd recommend walking over to it rather than viewing it from the bridge (where you get the noise of the fair rather than the music to go with the show). Don't leave it too late, i.e. after the last show, to come back as you could be struggling for a cab or waiting in a big line!

Unless you have a special ticket coming from Plaza Espana, you have to walk the long way around to get here. It is mobbed with people. My daughter really wanted to see it, and it was pretty, but I wouldn't go again.
