What is a Castell?
A castell is a human tower built traditionally at festivals in Catalonia. At these festivals, several colles castelleres (teams that build towers) attempt to build and dismantle a tower’s structure. On November 16, 2010, castells were declared by UNESCO to be amongst the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
The Castellers are one of the most intense and historical cultural tradition in Catalonia. It’s part of our identity.
Do you want to know them and see how they build the towers?
We take students, families, friends, senior and business each year to the meet the Castellers during their essays and many have shared both their positive reviews.
Visitor will be kindly welcomed to their rehearsal location. The visit starts with a friendly welcome, the presentation and introduction of the Castellers. Continues with a overview of the performance and ends with the guest participation (volunteer)
