Font Magica, Barcelona

The magic fountain or “Font Magica” is one of the sights every visitor to Barcelona should see, but I feel that many will probably miss seeing this spectacular event. It is a unique display of colour, light, motion, music and water acrobatics every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 21.30 to 23:30 pm in the Summer (May to September) and Fridays and Saturdays from 19:00 to 21:00 in Winter (October to April) and the best part is the price – free! The music sessions are every half hour where the water moves in time to the music.

I took this photo last Thursday evening and the area was full of people, my tripod was practically lent against a statue looking down on the fountain. I encourage you to click the image above to see the bigger preview because I included a person to give you an idea of scale – the small blue figure in the lower right corner is a woman holding a glow stick!
