Barcelona - Magic Fountains

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to give you med cruisers a heads up - if you want to see the Magic Fountains in Barcelona they only operate Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

DH and I arrived on a Monday evening and sat with a lot of other people at the very top of all of the fountains. after about 1hr and a half to 2 hours of waiting we decided to give up and walk back to the metro. When we got down to the bottom of the steps we saw the only sign with the days. (our guidebook didn't give that info either so we presumed it was everyday- wouldn't have waited otherwise)

Just wana let you all know so you dont waste anytime

Glad I could help. It wasn't a waste as such because we still had a picnic watching the sunset over the city but we did miss the fountains

Have a Fantastic cruise!

OP, sorry you were waiting and didn't get to see the show.

Here's a link for information about the Magic Fountains including directions. And the official site.

We did get to see it and the first music was Disney Remix - but the night we were there, someone jumped into the fountain so it ended abruptly so it was disappointing.
