This is also well worth a visit, we took the metro there to the stop called Espanya (so easy to remember) and as you come out of the station you can see if on your left. Lovely palace with lit up fountains dancing to music.

Not as impressive as we had hoped, but still worth a look. Lighter evenings means we didn’t see the light show. Also very busy and unfortunately the wind spoilt the show.

The Fountain is located in front of the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya and is a few minutes walk from Plaza Espanya. The fountain water has a choreographed light and music show. From April to May, show is from Thursday to Saturday evening from 9 to 10 pm. From June to September, it’s from Wednesday to Sunday evening from 9:30 pm to 10:30 pm. In October, it’s from Thursday to Saturday from 9 to 10 pm. From November to March, show is from Thursday to Saturday from 8 to 9 pm.

There is no admission fee for the show but it does get quite crowded. Be there early to get a good viewing spot.

The display was quite cool to see, lights up different colours etc ALTHOUGH it goes along to really tacky chart music which ruins it. Also it was so crowded when we went, making it hard to find a good spot to snap a instagram worthy pic (gotta think about them angles).

If you’ve never seen something like this you’ll think its magical. But if you’ve been to Las Vegas and witnessed the one outside the Bellagio casino, then you’ll be a bit disappointed to say the least.

Guess it’s worth seeing if you fancy something in the evening and have no plans.
