Canaletes celebrates the title


Thousands of Barça fans took to the streets of central Barcelona to celebrate their team’s second consecutive league title. As ever, the Canaletes fountain and Plaça de Catalunya were the focus for the festivities.

While the players were celebrating the win on the Camp Nou turf, those who were unable to go to the ground celebrated the championship in the area around Plaça de Cataluña, where a giant screen had been installed. The fans all chanted the names of their heroes and joined in with the songs as if they were in the Camp Nou itself.

Around the fountain

The supporters gathered around the legendary Canaletas fountain at the top of Las Ramblas and the surrounding streets, which were decked out in the Barça colours in the form of flags, shirts and scarves.

There were still people there in the small hours of the night, filling the Barcelona evening with songs and joy.

Excellent behaviour

To make sure things didn’t get too out of hand, the Mossos d'Esquadra and Guardia Urbana were on hand around the Plaça de Catalunya and Las Ramblas to keep an eye on the proceedings. Also, in order to keep a control of things, the media, Barcelona city council and the Home Office of the Generalitat had issued an announcement calling for respectful behaviour in the streets.
