Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An excellent evening out with the family. The weather was beautiful so really enjoyed out sitting and taking it all in. This is one of few things that is free in Barcelona and really worth a visit if you can. It does get really packed with people so aim to arrive in decent time. Action seems to start shortly after sun set.

Free to attend Thursdays to Sundays (from around 21:30) for about 2 hours and a truly magical experience. I go every time I’m in Barcelona! Music and lights synchronised with the fountain display. A mix of classical, pop and traditional Spanish music will appeal to everyone. Very popular and busy but a must-see when visiting Barcelona.

It's free and thousands of peoples come to watch - Just be sure it's running on the day you choose. Normally 4 or 5 nights a week

Very crowded but this is one of a must see when in Barcelona. Show starts at different times throughout the year so check times before going.

The show starts around 9.30 pm. Thousands of people gather around the fountains The show has music and colourful fountains dancing in sync with the tunes. The sun starts setting and colourful fountains look really amazing.

The grounds at this complex where the fountain, the art museums the botanic gardens and then the gondola of montjuic is enough to explore for multiple days but I would recommend one day and make sure you see the beautiful fountain after sunset if you can.

Showtime information on the website is not clear at all. Saw the fountain running without lights and sound. It was OK, but would have been better if there was a proper show.

Great experience. The place gets packed around 9pm and the show starts at 9.30. We came at 8.30 and got great view spots. It’s free and lasts for an hour. We saw it for half an hour and it was spectacular.

A great show and worth the trip. Street performers entertain prior to the main show. It was incredibly crowded on the Sunday night we visited. There were thousands of people there for the show. A great experience.
