Catalan History and Culture


Experience a local festival. Spain, and specially Catalunya, is the land of traditions. In every single city, town and village there is a festival of some kind which gets all the townsfolk out in the street to celebrate. The most popular element in a city festival is ‘Castellers” or Human Tower Builders, who build up their best human towers in this special celebrations. This is an opportunity for the community to gather, to participate and to celebrate a shared heritage. Castells (or human towers) have existed for over two hundred years and today it is still the liveliest popular expression of Catalan culture. This is a unique practice in the world and UNESCO has declared it Intangible World Heritage. Human towers can be up to 10-people high. Hundreds of Catalans of all ages take part, from 60-year-old veterans that help to form “la pinya” and then a child of no more than six years old (called "anxeneta") crowns the tower. You can share this and even take part in this wonderful tradition and sample the real Catalunya. Evening tours from Barcelona to Vineyards and Local tradition of the Human Towers make these tours a must do whilst in Barcelona.
