Fuente de Monjuic
The Monjuic Fountain in Plaça Espanya is definitely the coolest fountain I’ve ever seen. It lines multiple (at least five) city blocks. The fountain starts at the top of a hill at an old palace where the King and Queen of Spain used to live, and follows flights of stairs down the hill and continues on the median of the street. On the weekends at night, there is a fountain show accompanied by music and colored lights that illuminate the sprays of water that change shape to the music. It’s an awesome and somewhat romantic atmosphere (isn’t all of Europe). Even better, the palace has multiple spotlights shining into the night sky all around the dome of the castle. It is a scene unlike any other.
