"Magic Fountains - best free show in Europe" City Views Tip by Maidstoneman

City Views, Barcelona: 21 reviews and 30 photos

I first saw these on the television when the Olympics were held in Barcelona and vowed to see them in reality one day. However, many books and certainly local people we asked, had never heard of them, and finding information about when they are switched on was almost impossible to find.

Suffice it to say that it is several evenings a week. You can stand on the steps behind to get a birds eye view. It is better to see them when it is completely dark as the floodlighting is fantastic.

Use Espanya Tube Station and you can see the fountains from there - 10 minute walk to get right to them.

Beware of pick pockets whilst watching the show.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
