Font Màgica de Montjuïc

Avenida de Rius i Taulet. (Open Map)


The 'magic fountain'

Still using its original plumbing, Font Màgica de Montjuïc works its wonders with 3600 pieces of tubing and more than 4,500 light bulbs. Summer evenings after nightfall see the multiple founts swell and dance to anything from the 1812 Overture to Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé's Barcelona.

In July 2008, a new piece was inaugurated with the fountain choreographed to film soundtracks including Blade Runner, Gladiator and Lord of the Rings.
