Els Castellers, or human towers, are one of Europe’s most genuine and unique cultural displays. Under the traditional Catalan motto of “Força, Equilibri, Valor i Seny” (Strength, Balance, Courage, Common Sense and Calmness), els Castellers are an excellent way of showcasing Catalonia to the world.
Watch closely, or better yet, participate in a performance of Castellers is a unique and exciting experience. It conveys how the individual joins in the collective struggle to improve, in the effort to achieve a goal, the solidarity and spirit of cooperation among people of all ages, conditions and capabilities. All under one common goal, a group that breathe in unison as a single soul.
