La Font Mágica

Montjuïc nocturnal side

La Font Màgica

The Montjuïc has its nocturnal side too, with the engaging La Font Màgica.

With a flourish, the Magic Fountain erupts into a feast of musical, backlit liquid life.

It is extraordinary how an idea that was cooked up for the 1929 Exposition has, since the 1992 Olympics, again become a magnet. On hot summer evenings especially, this 15-minute spectacle (repeted several times through the evening) mesmerises onlookers. La Font Magica is a unique performance in which the water at times looks like seething fireworks or a mystical cauldron of color.
