We went to see the magic fountain show in April 2018. A lot of people gather here so keep your eyes open. But the atmosphere here is great. The fountain show is not that much different than any other fountain show, so I wouldn't go...More

I think the UK has a lot to learn about tourism. The fountains put on an hour long show Friday and Saturday evening only but attract thousands of visitors as well as local people. A great way to spend an evening

This was the best thing by a mile that we saw in Barcelona...and it was free!! It's quite good entertainment just watching the drink sellers avoiding the Police before the show!! Well worth a visit.

Do not miss this free show if you're in Barcelona. The magical, colour changing fountain dancing to a selection of pop and classical music is guaranteed to entrance people of all ages. We loved it!

A forbidden show, I was really fascinated... Barcelona, a place that will make you fall in love more and more. Do not lose this show from 21:30 to 22:30 in the summer period. Thank you, Barcelona, I love you!

Went there with two very young kids, it was amazing when the fountain show started which is around 9:30pm. Gets very busy but there is plenty is space to sit and watch.

We spent about 15 minutes watching the show as after this it is repetitive. It would probably be far more engaging if the music which accompanies the fountain was louder.

I have no idea if the sound can be turned up. I assume not as the music was quite low and we arrived early to get a good spot so we were quite close
