Catalonia’s Human Towers : The Art Of Castells


A trembling tower of red clad bodies rises tier by tier, the broad-backed men at the base sweating and shaking under its weight, until the tiny girl shimmies to the summit and raises her arm in victory.

It’s a amazing spectacle, but one of which its fearless participants, or castellers, are tremendously proud, for castell building is central to Catalan culture.

Ativity recomended to introduce you in the values of Catalan culture, solidarity, teamwork, cohesion … that are reflected in the formation of castles. Since the 1980s the phenomenon has become increasingly popular and widespread, and colles (or ‘clubs’) have now been established throughout Catalonia and even in the Balearic Islands. In 2010, the castells were classified by UNESCO as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

Foreign Friends will attend a Castellers apointment to see three of the best groups of Catalonia in action.

Activity in Sabadell:  SEPT 9th, 12-13 p.m. Plaça Sant Roc, 2. Sabadell, Barcelona
