• Font de Canaletes

This is at the top of the Ramblas, in the stretch known as the Rambla de Canaletes. Two things have made this little iron fountain built in the nineteenth century famous. The first is a legend that says that those who drink from the fountain will always return to Barcelona. The second is closely linked to Barcelona Football Club, since the Barça fans celebrate their team's victories around the fountain. In the 1930s, the newspaper La Rambla used to publish the results of football matches right next to the Canaletes fountain so the followers came around it to find out if their team had won. More than 10 decades later, the fountain is still a place for sporting pilgrims to visit.
