This is Barcelona’s largest ornamental fountain. Located at the foot of the ‘magical mountain’ of Montjuïc, it has become one of the most popular attractions in Barcelona, offering an amazing show of music, water and colour.
La Font Màgica (Magic Fountain) was designed by the engineer Carles Buigas in 1929 for the Universal Exhibition and later renovated in 1992 for the Barcelona Olympic Games.
Located between the Palau Nacional and Avenida Reina María Cristina, outside show hours the Magic Fountain offers a privileged view of Barcelona, sweeping all the way from Plaza Espanya to the foot of the Tibidabo mountain.
