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.

    We attended one night, hoping that we could enjoy the spectacular view of the fountain and the city. Sadly, the fountain was turned off, I guess because of the winter months. We were still able to enjoy some rather spectacular views down into Barcelona, which made the trip worthwhile. Just a shame that the fountain was not on at the time. Do make sure you go to the very top of the steps/escalators.

    Awesome monument, located in the Parc de la Ciutadella, built in 1888 because of the Barcelona World Fair.
    Admission to the parc is free.

    The first stop on our Gothic Quarter tour which left from Plaza Catalunya. The rumour is that if you drink from the fountain, you will return. My first time drinking from it, but hey, my 3rd visit to Barcelona. Keen as to come back, I need to see Sagrada Familia completed.

    Located within Plaza Reial, (the royal square), is the Fountain of the Three Graces created in the neoclassical style by Francesc Daniel Molina i Casamajó, the square itself is the starting point for a lot of free walking tours, which is also a must.

    Located within the gothic quarter is this lovely ceramic mural fountain depicting the daily life happening around the gate during the 18th century, easily missed however worth a look.

    Whist walking a long the La Rambla, we stumbled upon this fountain, that was truly out of place, designed by Sir Richard Wallace, they mostly reside in Paris, where they are numerous in Paris, strange to see one here.

    Located in the centre of place of Spain is this very impressive monumental fountain, built to celebrate the Barcelona Expo in 1929, the area it sits in is quite impressive with Montjuic in the background.

    The Font del Geni Catala is a fountain that was erected in memory of the Marquis of Campo Sagrado for his contribution to bringing water from the Sierra de Moncada to Barcelona. I

    Made of white marble and dating from 1852, the fountain is topped with a winged character holding a star representing the "Catalan genius", below this are four seated female allegories of the four provinces of Catalonia and the four marine horses represent the main rivers.

    Plaza de Catalunya has several fountains and numerous sculptures, as well as flocks of birds, trees, plants, flowers, other greenery and lots of people. Font dels Sis Putti is a beautiful fountain on one side of the Plaza, and it has three levels. It also has some beautiful sculptures of six chubby little young male figures, or putti. The fountain was constructed in 1926. It symbolises the birth of the Greek goddess Aphrodite. According to legend the goddess of love was born from the foam of the waves, near the coast of the island of Cyprus. In Greek aphro means foam. This is a very lovely representation and is absolutely worth visiting.

    I loved this park, exploring all the different areas and understanding the design of it, as the main influences was using a series if triangles to break up the whole area. Many open space lawns, many level changes, seating areas, water features, fountain spouts, and lots of play areas for all ages. It really is a beautiful and interesting park to visit it you are in the city!

    Things are always a little fuzzy when going back to 304 AD but, going on faith and whatever records the Romans left behind, Diocletian ended the lives of a nine year old boy and his thirteen year old brother on religious grounds. Justus (the elder) and Pastor are believed to be the subject of this fountain's naming.

    This is the second oldest fountain in Barcelona. In 1367 this fountain, in the Placa de Sant Just, sprung to life. The original three heads would have been the sources for the water. Today there are 2 spigots between the 3 heads. Up above is a single figure of what looks to be a young boy; suppositions are that this is a depiction of Saint Just(us). But, after 100 years, who can really say with any certainty?

    In 1831, it had a minor face-lift/reconstruction. It still looks like it is original.

    Still, it is a medieval treasure, so simple and free of formality and pomp. Amazing how the people of Barcelona can set up tables, chairs, and cafes around treasures like this that are 1,700+ years old. Seems like they should be under protective glass.

    La font de la Granota is a lovely fountain, although it's situated at a very busy spot, as the main road, Avinguda Diagonal is a huge one. Nevertheless there is probably plenty of space around it for people to congregate. The 100-year old fountain depicts the lovely sculpture of a young child holding a frog . The water runs from the frog's mouth. We some some people filling their bottles too! Not sure how good the water is! A nice spot and worth a stop, if you are passing by.

    This is one of the few big fountains you will find all over barcelona. It is located in the city centre but not as large as the magical fountain

    This is the remnants of a very old fountain along the Ramblas very near the Boqueria. Since we love the market we passed by here several times. It is an historic marker.
