The Magic Fountain of Montjuic dates back to 1929 and is a fountain in the city of Barcelona in Spain. The fountain was built for ‘The Great Universal Exhibition’ as it was thought that Carles Buigas the designer wanted a piece of art that would stand out and by using different coloured lights and music with the water fountains motions he could achieve this. The first display was during the exhibition in 1929. The colourful display has since become a sight to see for visitors to Barcelona.
The Barcelona metro system serves the Magic Fountain with the ‘Placa Espanya’ on the green and red lines being the closest stop. Alternatively, the number 23, 37 and 13 public buses also serve the sight.
