Human Pyramid

By dtourstravel_admin,


Catalonian festivals often feature a Human Pyramid or “Castells” and Tarragona gathers teams of contestants every other year for a competition.  The Castells teams, drawing on 80 brave and dedicated souls, can reach up to 10 levels of people. The topmost competitor is  a small (and very light) 4 or 5-year old child who can climb all the way up to the top and stand up proudly. (Yes, they wear helmets).
