I thought it would be more impressive in real life, but it wasn't. Just pass it by on your way to La Rambla

I am glad I saw it because I had heard about it. The ideal time to view it, not necessary for photography but for a buzz, would be after a Barcelona football club win. It is on Las Ramblas and part of the whole experience,

If you're not a FC Barcelona fan you perfectly can skip it, no problem at all. There are several fountains like this.

So, of course you have to have a drink from it - actually the water is cool and clear, so it's a great place to refill your water bottle! It's a pretty fountain/lamp post. Will we return to Barcelona? I hope so, one day!

Of course we drank from it. Legend holds that taking a sip will insure your return to Barcelona, something my wife promised me we would do.
