Castells (Human Towers)

The "castells" have been part of the identity of Catalonia for more than 200 years. "Strenght, balance courage and common sense" is their motto. On November 2010 the castells were declared by UNESCO to be amongst the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
