In the 16th century the urban centre of the small town of Horta developed around this square. At the beginning of the 20th century, when Horta was annexed by Barcelona, the big city gave it a fountain, an exact replica of the Font de Canaletes on the Rambla that still spurts out water today in Plaça de les Santes Creus. Surrounded by low houses and with plenty of shade under its trees, this is a great spot to relax on a sunny afternoon.
