The area is alive with activity. Very crowded, but press through and see the fountain from all angles. Especially head up the esculators towards the museum to get a view from above.

The persons selling beer-cerveza-agua become really annoying after half an hour, but the display and setting were entertaining if a little cheesy, but good fun. The kids will like it

We've sat here a couple of times after a day full of activity. Walk up the stairs up to the museum for a great look over the city. Just sit down, buy a beer off one of the streetvendors there to save a lot of money. Take in the views and enjoy.

We took the L5 and L3 metro over to Espanya station and walked up to Font Magica for the show. Unfortunately, the show is not every half hour from 1900 to 2100 as I had read. In October, before the time change, it is at 2100 and 2300 hrs. After the 1st of November the times are 1900 and 2100... More

This is a free water show with colorful lights. This event is perfect for families with young children who are fascinated by lights. My little boy loved the water and the lights very much. However, do be prepared to be with large crowds.

Stopped by to see the fountain and it was not working. The area seemed to lack civic attention. I would no recommend.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
