Magic Fountain – Fountains of Montjuic – BARCELONA

 

Fonts de Montjuic

Barcelona’s biggest ornamental fountain, which was built in 1929 for the International Exhibition, offers a spectacular display of music, water acrobatics and lights which generate over 50 kinds of shades and hues. The Montjuïc Magic Fountain has become one of Barcelona’s most popular attractions and is where the “Piromusical” is held, a true balletic spectacle of water and light.

It could be said that the Montjuïc Magic Fountain remains true to its name: during the displays, the moving water jets, illuminated in shifting shades and hues and synchronised with light and music, look like a magic dance which unfolds, subsides, rises and falls, is concealed and bursts forth before our eyes. The Magic Fountain, a masterpiece designed by the engineer Carles Buigas, was one of the great successes of the 1929 International Exhibition. The fountain was painstakingly restored for the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games so that it could continue to offer a unique display to delight all age groups.
