The above pictures are taken at the street level, below the fountains.

The next set of pictures show the fountain when looking down from the space halfway up the side of the hill, approaching the building you see in the first picture which is the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona

I must say, it was a fantastic experience to see this fountain which had it’s first performance on May 19, 1929 during the Great Universal Exhibition. Cynthia was delighted as well.

We both agreed that we LOVE Barcelona and that it’s “a pretty darn cool place“.

I mean, c’mon! It has a magic fountain!

  1. I feel as if I’ve been on the trip enjoying all the sights, sounds, smells, food, etc. with y’all. Thanks for the great photographs and for keeping this blog.

  2. Had I my choices, I’d really consider a Magic Fountain to be the deciding factor in where I’d spend the rest of my life…or at least where I’d visit. Very cool! Thanks!
