    To witness this you have to take public transport a bit far from the city. But it's a nice experience. Music and light show on water fountains with a beautiful backdrop. The place gets immensely crowded in the evening, so it is highly recommended to arrive early to grab a good place. It is also advisable to be cautious about different classes of hawkers, beggars, etc. The show runs for around 30 minutes.

    If you really want to sit and enjoy, get there early. Arrived 40 mins before show and crowds were already pretty big. Cool show but after a few minutes gets a little old. Not a bad way to cap off a day if you are in the area. No need to make a special trip. Kids will be bored. Not a laser show. Leave a little early to beat the crowd out.

    Really cool and huge fountain that changes display every few minutes or so. It wasn't switched on when I passed in late afternoon but by early evening it was gushing away. Quite a spectacular sight as is so large. With a bit of breeze behind it it was soaking people standing near it. Good vantage point from beneath the columns. Apparently it uses ground water not potable water.

    Such a beautiful light and music show. Get there 30-40 minutes early to get a good spot as it become very crowded. We went on a Saturday night. We stayed for the whole show and it got better as the sun went down. We then walked right up to the museum and the views were spectacular.

    We went there on a Wednesday evening, when the fountains are not turned on, and it was a very nice walk and the view from the top is great! We went there again on a Friday, from 9 pm when we knew the fountains would be on. A whole different story. It was very very crowded, if you're not close to the main fountain you can't hear the music very well, and the whole thing is a little bit boring. I saw the fountains in Dubai, and this is not even close to that. So don't worry too much if you don't get to see it. I would rather recommend a quiet walk on one of the other days.

    The fountain is amazing. It’s a very nice show of music and lights. You could stay there hours just admiring it. But is just one hour per day (you should check online the days that it happens before going). As every where in the word with many people, it has the same problem: you must be aware with your phone and wallet. It’s another MUST GO in Barcelona

    Starts exactly at the specified time. It was 9 o clock in April. Continues for a whole hour with small gaps. Worth seeing. There are steps going up to the building where people sit to enjoy the show. Otherwise the view is great from all around. It’s free to see as it is in an open area. I would also recommend seeing it in day time too as the building and fountains look fabulous.

    Great experience, and entirely free!! Lasts the full hour. It begins with modern music, then heads into more operatic music (which suits the show more in my opinion) then back to modern. Tip: A lot of people seem to leave after 20min (already have their photos I guess) so if you're happy with just seeing 20min or so, I'd recommend arriving about 8.20. Then you get to experience the fountains on the way up and probably get a decent spot without hassle when you get there!
