No ordinary water fountain, The Magic Fountain is an unusual combination of light shows and music performances repeated several times throughout the evening. Like most of the surrounding structures, the fountain was designed for the 1929 World Exposition. The massive building project employed over 3,000 workers. Severely damaged during the Spanish Civil War, the fountain did not operate again until 1955, when it was finally repaired and reopened. Today, the fountain is one of the more emblematic structures in this part of the city, mesmerizing long-time residents and visiting tourists with its 15-minute evening spectacles and frequent fireworks displays.

The Magic Fountain reviews
Check the timings online for the fountain before visiting.
A very beautiful show, which attracts a large number of tourists, it is better to come early to take comfortable seats and enjoy the view. But don't forget to ask stuff in what time fountain starts sing... I was here with my parents and sister and can tell that time you spend there will be interesting for people of all ages.
