You should definitely see the Magic Fountain not only because of its beautiful water show, not only because it is free, not only because it is majestic. But because it is pure magic made of water, light and music. The Magic fountain was built in 1929 as one of the main attractions for the 1929 Barcelona World Fair. It is still one of the most popular places in Barcelona with an estimated 2.5 million visitors annually. In the winter the fountain only has evening water and light shows on Friday and Saturdays. In the summer the evening light and music show are from Thursday to Sunday.
