Barcelona is the capital and the most populous city of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid. City Hall, also known as the Casa de la Ciutat, stands on one side of the Plaça Sant Jaume, right in the middle of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter and in front of the Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya. The neoclassical façade conceals Gothic gems such as the historic Great Hall, or Saló de Cent, designed by Pere Llobet and built in the 14th century.

    28. 28. Antoni Llena, Plaça Sant Miquel, Monument als Castellers Traditional human towers called castell Traditionally, the castellers perform their tower building during the main parts of larger festivals. Usually, three colles come together and build their human edifices. Nowadays, the towers are also often built outside of the festivals – the actual season goes from June to November
    29. 29. Homenatge als castellers by Antoni Llena
    30. 30. The building of castells is a rather rural tradition, which also explains why the first club in the city, the Castellers de Barcelona, was founded quite late in 1969. The founding members of the coll are mostly former citizens of Villafranca, not far away from Barcelona. There were some earlier groups, but they remained unsuccessful and no longer exist. The Castellers de Barcelona kept on refining their technique and the towers became higher and higher.
    31. 31. While in the 1970s, 7-level castells were built, the already have 10 levels today. This level of difficulty has only been achieved by 10 of the colles of the casteller association. The "Coordinadora the Colles Castelleres de Catalunya" comprises 60 colles.
    32. 32. The castells have their origins in a traditional folklore dance in the city of Valls. The steps of the dance were accompanied with the flute, as it is still played today during the tower building. At the end of the dance a small human tower was built. This probably has encouraged the ambitions of the dancers: the towers started becoming a phenomenon of their own, and rivalling groups started building higher and higher towers. It is assumed, that the castellers were officially separated from the traditional dance by the end of the 19th century.
    33. 33. The human castles, or ‘castells’, were presented as one of the most genuine and unique cultural practices of Europe, an excellent example of Catalonia’s “strength, balance, values and wisdom”.
    34. 34. A bunch of strong, big castellars make up the pinya (base) and support their teammates as they create level upon level with progressively fewer (and lighter) people. Once a level is complete, the people who make up the next one climb up the backs of the others and take their place. Then the top person, called an enxaneta (rider) climbs all the way to the very top and, supported by only two people, raises a hand with four fingers up to symbolize the Catalan flag. The enxaneta and the very top levels are often made up of children to lighten the load on the bottom levels. Then the castell disassembles itself from the top down by each level climbing back to the ground. Only when everyone is safely back on the ground is the castell considered a success.
    35. 35. The Catalan Human Castles known as "Castells" have today been included by UNESCO in the list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
    36. 36. The tradition dates back to end of the 18th century in Catalonia in Spain. The towers are built by "castellers" who belong to groups called "colles" and intricate techniques are used to complete the highest and most complex castle. There are three parts to a castell and each varies in width and height. Some reach eight storeys high and even 10 storeys has been achieved. A young child normally climbs the whole tower and salutes the crowds from the top. The feat requires strength, teamwork, concentration and discipline. The motto of the castellers is strength, balance, courage and wisdom.
