The Canellas Fountain
The first reference to the neighbourhood’s name of Canyelles was documented under the name of Canellas in the 10th century, referring to a historic fountain close to the Turó de la Segarra district. In its origins, this neighbourhood was a housing estate and was built in 1974. The first dwellers were the neighbours whose houses had been expropriated in the Guineueta Vella district. Among its last inhabitants there is a large number of immigrants, this district is located on the Collserola mountain and thanks to the ring roads built in 1991, it’s one of the neighbourhoods with the greatest future potential for development and growth in the entire area.
