The Magic Fountain Show Montjuic
Every show that mixes water, light and music is appealing to everyone, but especially to children, who are reminded of fireworks, but even better. Not in vain is it called "magic fountain"; When you are there, sitting quietly on the stairs, watching and listening, you feel there is magic. And you can not miss it. Besides, of course, it 's free.
The avenue that goes from the National Museum of Catalan Art to the Plaza of Spain, the Avenue of Maria Cristina, descends by the skirt of the Montjuic and it extends in phases, as in a great natural staircase, that the man has filled of stairs and Landings There, a series of fountains and waterfalls enliven the walker's walk and, on occasion, become a spectacle. The so-called Magic Fountain of Montjuic (Magic Fountain of Montjuïc) is that, a large round fountain that was inaugurated in 1.929, during the International Exhibition of Barcelona. More than 3,000 workers became reality the project of the engineer Carles Buigas, That could see it finalized in less than a year. The fountain rose in the place where the four great columns of Puig i Cadafalch stood, symbolizing the four bars of the Catalan flag, the Senyera, which were destroyed in 1928 during the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera.
"The Magic Fountain was damaged during the Civil War and did not return to operation until 1955, year in which the Buigas architect fixed it."

Beyond history and engineering, visitors who flock to the magic fountain do so to enjoy the show that combines the movements of water jets (which reach up to 4 meters high), with lights Of colors that animate them and the varied music that marks the rhythm.
