Beautiful fountain, exceptionally good at night when lit up. Looks great in the centre of the road, where it can be seen on all sides. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Really good visit at night time. The show is a must and you do need to be there a bit early as all the best spots get taken. Highly recommended

It was my first visit to the show of water, lights and sound. It is really amazing. I went early in order to get a nice place to view, as the place gets packed !

Would have to be pretty blooming magical to make a fountain without any water. It’s closed! How DARE they maintain it on the dates that I’m in Barcelona. Disgraceful! Know before you go.

A nice spot to sit down and take a break after a long day of touring. The hour long show was fantastic and I highly recommend you get there early to get a good spot either on the bridge or on the stairs.
