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
a tener en cuenta que aumenta la cantidad de personas en temporada de verano, pero el espectáculo es increible todo el tiempo. more »to keep in mind that the number of people in summer season increases, but the show is amazing all the time.
日曜に出掛けたせいか、ものすごい人の数でした。近くに行かないと音楽は聞こえないし、不馴れな土地で帰ることを考えると心配だったので、遠目で雰囲気を感じて早々に帰りました。 more »Probably because I went out on Sunday, it was a terrible number of people. If I didn't go near, I wouldn't hear music, and i was worried about going back to an unfamiliar place, so I felt the atmosphere from a distance and went back early.
