The Canaletes Fountain is one of the most significant landmarks of Barcelona, being a meeting point as well as a vantage point to celebrate the victory of the Barcelona Football Club. The name ‘Canaletes’ refers to water channels that used to bring water down from the Collserola Ridge to Barcelona in the 14th century. Later on, in the 18th century, the University of Estudis Generals was built on this site and the fountain was created using water jets. In the late 19th century the fountain was reconstructed with iron. Four water sprouts were placed surmounted by the shield of Barcelona. The legend goes that anyone who drinks the water of this fountain will fall in love with Barcelona and visit here time and again; and we don’t see why you would not!

  • La recomiendo. La fuente de Canaletas es muy visitada por los turistas, ya que la tradición indica que si tomas agua de la fuente volverás a Barcelona. La fuente esta ubicada casi al inicio de la rambla de Cataluña, comenzando por la plaza Cataluña. Los aficionados del club de Barcelona celebran aqui sus triunfos. Lamentablemente como veran en las fotos, la fuente no esta cuidada, ni con el mantenimiento adecuado. Al ser muy concurrida y fotografiada recomiendo un mejor mantenimiento.

  • Un una rambla llena de Comercio y turistas se disfruta mucho de la multiculturalidad q ofrece Barcelona .

  • Immaginavo qualcosa di meglio, è solo un lungo marciapiede in mezzo a due strade affollate di macchine, fumo e rumore, con dei piccoli stand e cibo precotto. Niente fuori dal comune, sembra che di tipico abbiano solo la paella.

  • Отлично! Рамбла

  • El sitio más turistico de Barcelona
