Night time magical fountain

The fountain looks great in the daytime, nighttime gives it a great magical feeling for both young & old alike. Well worth the visit.

The times change so look it up before you go. We went on a Friday evening and it was jam packed. The best place to sit is high on the steps so people standing up down front won't block your view. It was definitely cool to see and a great way to end our trip. Worth the hike to get... More

The fountains put on a good show between 8-9 and 9-10 depending on the season. And the square, Playa Catalunya, is the setting for events on festival days etc. Surrounded by the giant El Cortes Ingles department store and Zara, Apple, etc.

We had a great time with my friends here, the show was great and also the atmosphere. After we actually flighted to get the best place to take some pictures and videos we realised the best place to enjoy the show is next to the little 'bar' where you van sit down, have a cava and take on the whole....

At night there is an amazing water show. It great to go after dinner and just seat and relax hearing the music play and the water show of the fountain.

A definite must if you visit Barcelona. It only takes place on certain days and hours so keep informed. I would recommend to arrive a bit earlier so that you can find a place near the fountain as the place is packed with tourists. The show really is worth the hardship.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
