5/2/10 I know that I just did a long blog entry yesterday but last night we went to The Magic Fountain of Montjuic, and we LOVED it. The magic fountain is a spectacular display of colour, light, motion, music and water acrobatics - if you mix all these elements together in just the right combinations, you end up with pure magic! I think you will agree with me when you see a couple of the pictures we took last night. And the music that was playing while the fountains of water danced around and changed constantly in height, color, intensity, and arrangement was fabulous. We stayed for over an hour and the music changed with each little show. Then there would be a short break and another, different display would start.
For those of you who want more info, here are the times:
October to April
Fridays and Saturdays
Music sessions: 19:00 19:30 20:00 20:30

Summer: (May to September)
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Music Sessions: 21:00 21:30 22:00 22:30 23:00

To get there, take the Metro to Plaza Espanya and walk a short way towards all the fountains. The main event is at the biggest fountain and it is best to try to stand on some of the overlooks around it, or sit on the steps, because then you can hear the music too.
Here are a few pictures:
These are the little fountains leading up to the biggest one:

The colors were constantly changing:

Hi Mary and Elaine,

I've been following your blog since you left Plympton last summer and I am SO jealous! Your descriptions make everyplace sound wonderful and make me want to go. Even places I've been before sound better through your eyes!:-)
I know you're not planning to come back this way any time soon but there will always be a spot for you on Lake St. In the meantime Jim and I will travel vicariously through you.
Jim and Ann T.
