Hi, I’m Ferran Arqué from 6th B class in Badalona. I want to talk about our power light central. These are Sant Adria’s termic electric central. Sant Adrià is a little city that is next to Badalona and Barcelona. Near the beach these towers were built in 70’s. The towers are emitting now much smoke and pollute and for a very long time. But now they will stop working. No more smoke. The autorities wanted to shut down them. But there is a lot of people who did not want it. So there was a referemdum about what to do with the towers. All Sant Adria’s residents vote to conserve the towers. Now they are the new symbol of the city. Bye, Ferran.

Hello! I’m Victor Pazos Malagón. 
The “castellers” (castles) are a really popular Catalonia’s tradition. In all Catalonia there are a lot of Castellers teams. They make a very big human tower. Here, in Badalona, we have one team of Castellers. They are called “Xiquets de Badalona”. (Badalona’s boys). They make these towers in front of the city hall every festival or celebration. Catalan people like very much this. They are very popular.
