Font màgica de Montjuïc
Barcelona • Spain
By Carles Buigas
The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc first spouted on 19 May 1929 during the Great Universal Exhibition and continues to delight visitors to Barcelona today.
The control area, which is inside the two central pools, is where the banks of lights are located, with their pentagonal prisms containing the fountain’s five colours: white, yellow, red, blue and green.
