2018

Seeing them rehearse and, most of all, joining in, is a thrilling experience! The human towers – castells – are one of the most authentic and unique cultural manifestations in Europe and consist of the building of human towers up to nine and ten tiers high.

Castells have been awarded World Heritage status by Unesco and are part of Catalan cultural identity while conveying values of social cohesion, solidarity and personal betterment.

Do you want to find out about these everyday people who are able to do extraordinary things? Do you want to find out first hand what it means to be a casteller?. You'll be able to see a rehearsal and find out about the world of castellers accompanied by a member of the team. If you wish, you will also be able to join the pinya (base tier) of a tower.
