La Font Màgica de Montjuïc

Barcelona Magic Fountain

An engineering jewel to delight the eye

One of the main attractions of the 1929 World Fair, the Magic Fountain of Montjuic has not lost his attractiveness even compared to more modern attractions.

A great deal of the Fountain's charm lies in the fact it still relies on the illumination technology designed by engineer Carles Buígas, who conceived the Fountain. The Fountain only has white lights that are located inside 5-sided prisms, which generate all kinds of shades and hues as they rotate around the white lights.
