The most favourite fountain among locals, you can drink water from it and then you will certainly return again in Barcelona.
Canaletes Fountain (Font de Canaletes) is a beautiful fountain with taps, crowned by a lamp post. On the tile next to the fountain is an inscription which says that anyone who drinks the water from the fountain, will come back to Barcelona.
The fountain is a favourite spot for travellers, loving couples, as well as football fans of "Barcelona" - they like to sit here before the football match and after it.
The fountain is located at the beginning of La Rambla, near the Plaza Catalunya.
