great show!

This show is a program that should not be missed during a visit to Barcelona! Dance of water and light! The show starts at about 9 pm and lasts for about an hour and a half. If you want to find a seat, you should come here at least an hour earlier. Before the show starts, street artists perform programs such as dancing, singing, acrobatics and....

Didn’t work.

I was so excited to see this. I went there and waited, alongside around 100 others, as the information said the show would start at 9pm. Nothing happened. The water wasn’t even running. The worst thing is, this information wasn’t made available and there was no staff there to talk to. Was left very disappointed.

I came here with my children, but unfortunately due to covid, the fountain doesn't work. Thanks to the amazing surrounding Venetian Towers in Plaza España, we weren't too disappointed.

Due to COVID the fountains weren’t turned on we had climbed to the top not entirely sure where the fountain was. Luckily the view was great, even without the fountain being off. There was a guy up there playing piano who was sarcastic to anyone that didn’t give him euros. We didn’t have any cash at the time otherwise we would have given him something because he was very good. But being ridiculed as we left for not having euros on us wasn’t the best.

Not only the fountain itself, but also the surrounding, the Venetian Towers in Plaza España, the hole space between the towers and the fountain and the Museum on top of the hill...gorgeous!

Definitely visit the fountain during the day and then return at night to see how different it looks! Just sit back and enjoy the atmosphere and relax!

The fountain and the museum that are behind it are one of the most striking views in Barcelona. I would count this as a must see.

Nice and it's free

This is a good way to spend an hour. That would be get there 30 minutes early as it gets a LOT of people. The actual show lasts 30 minutes and it's quite nice.
