The show itself is not such a big deal, but the panorama you can see from that spot worth a visit. Pay a lot of attention to your pockets! You'll see why!

These fountains are impressive and grand. They stand in a prominent position in the park. We visited in the morning so didn't get to see it in all its glory on a night.

Incredibly touristy and packed with people but it was an amazing display and completely free. We picked up a drink in a shop on the way so we weren't ripped-off by the fountain. If you have some time to spare one evening or you're nearby,...More

So, the show starts in summer time at 21:30 and lasts for 30 minutes. We made the mistake and came at 20:00 o lu to wait for one and a half hours. Other than that, unique experience! A must for Barcelona travelers.

Wonderful setting and beautiful show of colour and music to the fountain display. BEWARE of pickpockets and pushers on the metro afterwards. They stole our friend’s Phone.

Its really a show that looks the same after about 5 minutes. The colors change and thats what makes it look different. Enjoy if from wherever you get the place to stand or sit, really dosen't matter that much.
