The ubiquitous drinking fountains of Barcelona are unique to the old and new (parts of the) city. But one has to the most exceptional... The top part of Las Ramblas is called the "Rambla de Canaletes". This part of the Ramblas owes its name to the drinking fountain that has been there since the 19th century and is called the "Fuente de Canaletas" (translated: fountain of little canals or water pipes (supplying Barcelona's old city with water)). It is one of the most iconic fountains in Barcelona, as it also serves as a working drinking fountain.... and crowned by a lamp post The fountain is famous for two reasons: One: Legend has it that he or she who drinks its water, will come back to Barcelona. Thus, all who love the city or plan to return one day, drink the water out of superstition. Second: The Catalans meet there to celebrate the successes of "their" FC Barcelona. This tradition dates back to the 1930s, when supporters were going to inquire about the results at the political and sports newspaper La Rambla, just in front of the fountain. On the door hung a wooden slate on which the results of the soccer matches of the day were written. When Barcelona won the match, all supporters celebrated the victory around the fountain. That's all folks!
