Barcelona's most famous fountain is the Magic Fountain on Plaça de Carles Buïgas near Plaza Espanya in Barcelona. The nearest metro station is Espanya on L1 red line. The Magic Fountain is one of the Barcelona's most visited and and best loved landmarks and definately a Top tourist attraction. It was designed by Carles Buigas for the Barcelona International Exhibition in 1929. Buigas created a fountain with light, colour and sound to accompany the water movement and he designed the fountains to cascade down the hill from the Palau Nacional building (now the 
MNAC Museum ) like a raging river to end in the Magic Fountain before "dying" in the sea along the avenue of Avinguda Maria Cristina. It is truly a magical sight.

Around 2.5 million people visit the Magic Fountain every year. The magic fountain in Barcelona has many different choreographies ranging from film music shows, classical music shows, a zarzuela, a twentieth and twenty-first century remix and an pop mix with the song "Barcelona" performed by Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé.

The fountain has a water recirculation system following the introduction of a drought decree in 2008 by the Catalan government, the Generalitat. The Magic fountain is open to everyone and admission is free. In December there is a special Christmas water and music show on Fridays and Saturdays and on 25th December and 1st January between 19:00 to 21:00
. The fountain is closed every year from mid January to mid February for annual maintenance. The Magic Fountain is also the venue for the Barcelona New Year Celebration show on 31st December.

The biggest night of the year for the Magic Fountain are New Years Eve and the last night of the annual  Merce Festival The final event of the Merce festival is the beloved Piromusical show at Magic Fountain. This is a lovely music, water, laser light and fireworks display which changes theme from year to year. Spectators fill the entire length of the Avenue of Maria Cristina all the way from the fountain to the two Venetian towers at the entrance, so we recommend that you get there around 21.00 to get the best spot to stand or sit. There is not seating- spectators stand on the avenue during the show. It's a very magical event suitable for all ages and with a unique atmosphere. The Merce piromusical is usually transmitted live on Catalan TV3.
