Barcelona Magic Fountain of Montjuic

The tour guide explained this fountain much better than I would be able to:

 

The magic fountain of Montjuïc's first performance was on May 19, 1929 during the Great Universal Exhibition. The designer Carles Buigas submitted his plans one year before the exhibition and many thought that the project was too ambitious to be created, let alone completed on time.

 

Over 3000 workers were commissioned to work on the project and less than 1 year later the magic fountain was born.

 

The magic fountain is a spectacular display of colour, light, motion, music and water acrobatics - if you mix all these elements together in just the right combinations, you end up with pure magic! The magic fountain is a "must see" when you come to Barcelona and highly recommended.
