...because of the wonderful water fountains.....





...once upon time when there was not running water connected in every house, water was collected from various sources around the city. Over time some of these fountains were built to be quite beautiful and continue to be used today.  Many of the iron ones dating from the late 19th century.

Of course, maybe the most famous one is the Canaletes Fountain on Ramblas- legend says that if you drink from this one, you will fall in love with Barcelona and return.  It is also where Barça fans go to celebrate any victory!
