Built by Carles Buïgas for the International Exhibition of 1929, it is the largest ornamental fountain in the city and offers a show combining music with the movement of water and over 50 different lights.
In 1992 the fountain was painstakingly restored for the Barcelona Olympics.
Every year, Barcelona’s main festival, La Mercè, culminates in a Pyromusical performance that combines the fountain show with a fantastic fireworks display.
In an effort to save water, all the water used in the fountain is recycled.
