Barcelona

The Palau Nacional (Catalan for ‘National Palace’) was the main site of the 1929 International Exhibition on the hill of Montjuïc in Barcelona, Spain. It was designed by Eugenio Cendoya and Enric Catà under the supervision of Pere Domènech i Roura. Since 1934 it has been home to the National Art Museum of Catalonia.
Most evenings in the summer there is a "magic fountain" display at the base of the stairs in front of the building where a huge fountain changes colour and shape in conjunction with music played over a PA system. I attended this but found far more interest in turning away from the fountain and directing my camera at the lasers emanating from behind the palace.
