...because of those crazy, climbing 'castellers'...














In a moment of perfect timing, as I was showing my visiting friends through the city we came across La Festa Catalana- a celebration and display of many things Catalan.  The most spectacular being the Castell competition where teams compete to build and dismantle human castels.  Fascinationg, nail-biting and declared by UNESCO to be amongst the 'Masterpieces of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity'.  

UN BESO: the castellers of Cataluña X
