NileGuide Expert tip:
Crowds gather when the weather is superb. It's a good idea to arrive early to scope out the best viewing spot.
After a long day of museums, let loose at the magic Fonts. Feel like a kid again with the excitement of the colorful fountain show set from the Plaça de Espanya to the MNAC museum. Imagining the fountains' plumbing system below is mind boggling, not to mention counting the over four thousand light fixtures used to create the magic. While the light, water, and music show is flowing, the Art Deco flair of the 1929 fountains is often overlooked. The magic is choreographed to varied musical medleys, and is not to be missed on a warm summer night. Winter shows are on Friday and Saturday nights, and spring and summer shows are from Thursday to Sunday.
