The Magic Fountain is a spectacular mix of lightshow combined with music, motion, colours, and 3.1 million liters of water. It was designed by engineer Carles Buigas and built in 1929 for the International Expo in Barcelona.

In September on last day of La Mercè festival the Magic Fountain is the place for “Piromusical”. Piromusical is a yearly firework display with a music and laser show. The display is very popular among the locals and definitely worth to see!
