The fountain is nice but wouldn’t recommend it unless you are nearby since you have to be there before the show starts to get a good spot. It is colorful but the music other than the opening song is not representative of the city, I...More

An historic fountain show in the middle of Barcelona. We took an organized tour with transportation--but it's very easy to do it on your own and save the money.
