The Magic Fountain

Barcelona, Spain
4.7 / 18
The color music fountain in the square in front of the National Palace, which is located on Mount Montjuic. The fountain was built in 1929 for the World Exhibition, renovated and updated in 1992 in preparation for the Olympics. The lighting system of the structure (about 5,000 light sources in 3,600 water flows) creates interesting visual illusions during operation, which is why the fountain was nicknamed “magic”.
Address:Plaça de Carles Buïgas, 1, Barcelona
