When the night begins to fall in the Gothic Quarter, the atmosphere becomes pretty magic. The narrow streets and the pretty medieval squares of the Barrio Gotico district start to lit up in that particular time of the day so loved by photographers and which is named “blue hour”. It is that particular compromise between the day not over yet and the city lights blooming slowly. The Gothic Quarter (or Barrio Gotico in Spanish) becomes even more picturesque at this time and its small squares fully reveal a magic atmosphere to catch with your camera like the one in the photo. We know how photographers love this part of Barcelona and how many of them are looking for some original and beautiful images to shot after sunset. This is why by participating to our Barcelona night photo tour you will discover some picturesque glimpses of the old town that after dusk become even prettier than during the day. During the night photo tour you will learn also some useful tips to improve your skills and your knowledge about night photography. If you have chosen Barcelona as your next photographic destination do not hesitate to take a Barcelona night photo tour with us.

Christmas in Barcelona is a magic experience. Colorful Christmas display lights already lighted up the nights of Barcelona. In such a beautiful city with large avenues, medieval narrow streets, pedestrian streets and amazing modernist-style buildings, Christmas lights add some magic touch to the holidays’ spirit. Generally, theme, size and colors of Christmas decorated lights change every year. The best ones are to be found along the main streets (Gran Via or Passeig de Gracia), Portal de l’Angel pedestrian street, Plaza de Catalunya, Ramblas and the major shopping areas.
The night lights show at the Magic Fountain of Montjuic in Barcelona is on again after the usual short winter maintenance break. Located right below the Palau Nacional Museum on the Montjuïc hill and near Plaza España, this impressive fountain of Barcelona is considered one of the most popular and must see attractions in town. The Magic Fountain of Montjuic was designed by the engineer Carles Buigas and realized for the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition. Restored for the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games it quickly became one of the most popular sights to visit. The Magic Fountain is the main feature of the collection of several waterfalls and ponds which stretch down from the Palau Nacional to Plaza España along Avinguda Maria Cristina. A spectacular multicolored and synchronized display of lights, motion, music and water jets take place every weekend’s nights for a couple of hours or so.
