Magic Fountain of Montjuïc

Montjuїc, the so-called mountain of the Jews, has an elevation of 173 metres, and it is higher than any other building in the city. The stairs of Palau Nacional face west towards Fontana Magica (Magic Fountain), which is the main feature of the collection of waterfalls and ponds on Avinguda Maria Cristina. Built in 1929 for the Universal Exposition, the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc is a popular attraction in Barcelona, attracting both visitors and locals who come here to watch the magical show of jets of water blasting into the sky while dancing to the rhythm of lights and music.
