Constructing human towers or castells is a rural cultural phenomenon of Catalonia declared Cultural and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. At the competition, biannually held in Tarragona, 100 km away from Barcelona, you'll be able to see such stunning examples of human towers, that are totally worth the trip.

In 2014 it was the 25th competition, coloured with record-breaking heights of the tower. Every year around 40 teams register and try very harder to showcase their determination. Don't miss the event that is both traditional and inspiring and occurs yearly in a close vicinity to Barcelona.
