When we were in Barcelona, Spain we casually went to see “The Magic Fountain”. Why? It was on our list of things to do. We were not expecting to see much. We were just going to see another fountain that might have music coordinated with the water. But this is not what happened. We were blown away by this fountain. BEST FOUNTAIN SHOW IN THE WORLD. A definite must see. Put this on your bucket list.
The magic fountain of Montjuïc’s (Font màgica de Montjuïc in Catalan) first performance was on May 19, 1929, during the Great Universal Exhibition. The designer Carles Buigas submitted his plans one year before the exhibition and many thought that the project was too ambitious to be created, let alone completed on time. Over 3000 workers were commissioned to work on the project and less than 1 year later the magic fountain was born. The magic fountain is a spectacular display of color, light, motion, music and water acrobatics – if you mix these elements together in just the right combinations, you end up with pure magic! The magic fountain is a “must see” when you come to Barcelona and highly recommended.
