Castellers: a Catalan tradition

Posted on: February 6, 2009

We hope that video answer your questions. A Castle needs a lot of people to be build. Not only people in the tower, also in the base.

Castellers is an ancient tradition in Catalonia that consists in building human castles. This one is from “Castellers de Vilafranca” and is currently the largest one ever made, with a height of ten people! (Notice the ones at top are children, like you). No ropes, no helmets, no nothing, just the traditional suit and guts! Some think it’s scary freakish to do this just for fun, but the truth is in more than a century doing this things only a few had severe injuries.
