Barcelona's Magic Fountain is the most famous fountain in Barcelona. The Magic Fountain is near Plaza Espanya. The nearest metro station to the Magic Fountain is metro station Espanya on L1 red line

The fountain itself is on at the end of Av. Reina Maria Cristina on Plaça de Carles Buïgas which was named after the creator of the fountain. 

The Magic Fountain is one of the Barcelona's most visited and and best loved landmarks and a top tourist attraction. The fountain was designed by Carles Buigas for the Barcelona International Exhibition in 1929.

Buigas created a specatular 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 see the Magic Fountain every year making this a Top Ten Barcelona Attraction.

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 a pop mix with the 1992 Olympic song 'Barcelona' by Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé.

The Magic Fountain uses a water re-circulation 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 the fountain is usually open on certain days on at Easter and Christmas weeks and on 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 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.

NB! The Magic Fountain is closed in January or February for two or three weeks for annual technical service and maintenance
