NileGuide Expert Says:
The dancing water fountain performance is one of Placa Espanya's biggest selling points. Best to be seen at night, this combination of dancing water, music and lights is an unforgettable experience. Night shows are only on Friday's and Saturday's from 7-9pm.

NileGuide Expert tip:
There's plenty of public transportation that provides easy access to Placa Espanya.The best way to get there however, while seeing the city at the same time, is to go by foot.
Situated at the foot of Montjuic, in the distric of Sants-Montjuic, lies Placa Espanya. One of Barcelona's most well known squares and designed by one of Gaudi's disciples, Placa Espanya is a great place to visit not only for its famous 'magic fountain' performance, but because of its close proximity to almost everything. It's just a short walk from the up and coming barrio, Poble Sec and is also walking distance to cool sites such as the National Art Museum of Catalonia, one of Spain's finest. Originally built in 1929 to be used for the Universal Exposition, today Placa Espanya is used by the public for all types of gatherings and events.
