How to drink water from a Canaletes fountain in Barcelona
Instead of throwing coins into the Canaletes Fountain (Font de Canaletes), it is better to drink water from it - then, as locals say, your wish will come true :)

Locals are sure that everyone who wants to visit Barcelona again, need to come to the La Rambla street, find the first area of the boulevard, which is called Canaletes because of the fountain (near the Catalonia Square) and drink water from this small fountain that looks like a large kettle with cranes.

The water is very tasty and can refresh you in the heat :)
