Since I'm not traveling until Christmas, you get images from my favorite travels in 2018!⠀
⠀
Traditions run deep in Catalonia, and the making of human towers (a Castell) is one of the oldest. It was first documented in 1712 near the city of Tarragona. Through the 18th century, the ‘sport’ spread to other towns. However, it was really only in the last 50 years that the practice of building Castells began to spread all over Catalonia. “It represents the strength and resilience of the Catalan culture overall to overcome obstacles and grow bigger and better.” One of the Marrecs team members told me.⠀

I know what you are thinking…human tower…what? It’s just as it sounds; people standing on the shoulders of people, standing on the shoulders of people, standing on the shoulders of people, and on, and on. ⠀
