The Canaletes Fountain is considered a must see in Barcelona . It is located in the center of the Spanish capital, on the same Canaletes Boulevard, which in turn serves as the start of the famous Rambla pedestrian street. Many tourists begin their tour of Barcelona with the visit of the Canaletes Fountain. But do not think that here you will be waiting for a giant fountain and even with musical abilities. Canaletes is exactly the opposite of the popular singing fountains of Barcelona. It is a small, but very colorful structure, resembling a samovar in shape. This similarity is enhanced by the fact that the Canaletes fountain in Barcelona has a crane. To be precise, there are four of them, and from all the cranes you can get water. In the fountain there is really pure drinking water, so you can quench your thirst without fear. Upstairs, the fountain is decorated with four lanterns.
Fountain Canaletes is a long-liver of Barcelona. They say that he appeared here in the 19th century. At this time, next to the fountain was the editorial office of the newspaper La Rambla, which by tradition hung out for public viewing the results of all matches with the participation of the national football team. So, in the days of victory, the Canaletes fountain in Barcelona and the nearby Plaza Catalunya were turning into places of folk festivities. To this day, this place is at the fountain – the point of gathering fans of the football club Barcelona.
When going on an excursion to the Canaletes fountain in Barcelona, grab an empty water tank with you.
To draw water in your hands will not be comfortable, and so you can carry it with you, and as much as you want. For tourists there are no restrictions, as they say, dial – I do not want. However, be ready for excitement. Too many travelers believe in the tradition of the fountain and want to be in Barcelona again.
