Canal de la Fontana a tiny bit of Venice in Javea

View along Canal_de_la_Fontana,_Javea

The Canal de la Fontana runs through the community of Javea and was formally the Rio Gorgos river mouth before it was diverted to the Port area. While the Canal is quite scenic and adds charm for sure to the streets of the city, it also has a practical use as it has been utilised for over five decades to moor small boats. In fact, small boats line the sides of the Canal that has been recently been remodelled. The end result is more space for practical use and more decorative banks and bridges to make it a more pedestrian friendly area.
