Castellers

I have attached the link to a video I made about the Castellers in Barcelona, more commonly known as the human towers. We were able to see them make a few different ‘pyramids’ that were ‘built’ in different ways. Sometimes, the base would be constructed and then people would climb up higher, level by level. Other times, the smallest members would go up first and make their layer, and then the levels would be added from the bottom.

This was a great show to experience first-hand, since this is something unique to the area. They put on a great show, playing music during the tower building and selling souvenirs to support their clubs. Click on the link to see the video and feel like you were there too. 🙂
