The large circular Magic Fountain is located overlooking the National Art Museum of Catalonia, which presents the imposing guise of a palace. Like the Palace, it was built for the 1929 World's Fair. On weekend evenings, the fountain is transformed into a colorful, sparkling light show that lives up to its name. The show is very popular, especially in the summer, when it attracts large crowds of tourists, creating a festive atmosphere.
Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is one of the world's leading tourist cities, facing the Mediterranean Sea and blessed with a mild climate. It is famous for its architecture by Antoni Gaudí, who was active in the 19th century, and especially for the splendor of the Sagrada Familia, which is still being built today. The city's large area is also home to many other attractions, such as the historic Gothic Quarter, Montjuïc with its many museums, and Tibidabo, which offers a panoramic view of Barcelona.
