Human Pyramids: “Castels” in Catalonia

Human Pyramids !!

In Catalonia, one of the great traditions are the Castellars, the clubs in many towns that sport teams who climb towards the sky.  I have been so lucky to witness these teams in action during major “Firas” and “Festas”, big celebrations/festivals that often take place around the town’s Saint day. I happened across this video by Jean Christophe Rampal, thanks to the French newspaper Le Monde’s website. Enjoy the climb! I think the tallest Castel record is 9 stories!

ahhh, almost a good photo….will search for another one…
