All reviews light show water show hear the music show starts friday and saturday classical music art museum visiting barcelona display spectacle thousands mnac metro arena placa pickpockets performance
What a show to see for all. There is many fountains surrounding the main one with great views from each angle. Lots of people, so be mindful of belongings. Best views are at night. Look at schedules. The dates of operation change.
We were surprised to learn that the fountain show lasts almost an hour (now this might be season dependent). We went half an hour before and it was full of people and we couldn't get a good spot. After half an hour of the show,...More

Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to
this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.

We were there in mid September and the shows were 2000 to 2200 about every half hour Thursday, Friday and Sunday. We went at 2100 on Friday, had a decent vantage point but almost missed it trying to get there. If I do it again, I will eat in the area, then go to the fountain about 2030.
