One of the most important (and perhaps most inspiring) traditions of Catalonia, is that of building castells – human towers usually consisting of up to 500 people, often up to 10 men high. The custom dates back to the late 18th century, and usually takes place during certain festivals throughout the year in Catalonia as well as the Balearic Islands. Published on YATZER 6th January 2014
