Castells - Colles Castelleres de Catalunya

What are castells?

At first sight, castells seem to be merely human towers up to ten levels high half way between acrobatics and folklore. However, that initial impression conceals many other qualities making them one of the most unusual cultural manifestations in Europe.

Each human tower is the result of universal values such as teamwork, solidarity, self-improvement, the feeling of belonging and the integration of people of all origins, races and social backgrounds.

It is a genuinely Catalan tradition which UNESCO declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2010.
