In the beginning of La Rambla you can find this tiny, non-remarkable fountain which is named ‘la Fuente de Canaletas’. At first sight, most people just walk by without knowing the value of this place. But how can we blame you if nobody tells it? After this little explanation you’ll definitely need to have a look next time you pass by. As you all probably know, football is highly important in Barcelona, and so is the celebration after. But what has this fountain to do with the football history of Barcelona? Well this Canaletas Fountain is used as the meeting place for the celebration of victories of FC Barcelona. Every time when Barcelona wins, the Ramblas is entirely filled with people celebrating the victory all night long with beers, flags and a lot of noise. It truly is an incredible spectacle that you can’t miss! But keep this in mind: you won’t be home before next morning!
