I believe we have determined that I am cheap or, as I prefer to be labeled, frugal. Not to say that I won’t kick down serious cash to create a memorable experience, but sometimes free is good too. Really good. The Magic Fountain of Montjuic in Barcelona is a case where “the best things in life are free”.
I have seen a fountain before, I’ve been to the Bellagio in Las Vegas. That counts. But, I haven’t seen a Spanish fountain. Or a magic one.
The Magic Fountain of Montjuic is an impressive display of water acrobatics, colorful light and music ranging from classical to modern hits.
There were mini fountains on the way to the maxi fountain, an amouse bouche.
The fountain did its dance every couple of minutes, and it was tantalizing. It could have even been magical If I wasn’t sandwiched in between hundreds of other tourists.
Within the same area there are plenty of other attractions if water works are not your only thing; the Olympic Stadium, Castell de Montjuic, Museu Nacional D’Art de Catalunya and Palau Nacional.
