Canaletes fountain


El font de Canaletes, located at the top of Las Ramblas, is perhaps the most famous fountain in the city. The legend goes that if you drink from it you are condemned to return here (Aquél o aquélla que beba de su agua volverá a Barcelona).

Barça fans traditionally congregate here to celebrate victories. The tradition dates from the 1930s when fans would gather here to read the scores of Catalan teams written on a blackboard outside the offices of the defunct newspaper.
