It’s entertainment is the traditional Spanish.
Spectacular tradition attracts thousands of spectators from across the country. 42 teams gathered recently in the Spanish city of Tarragona to compete in Kastela construction of towers from people.
The ancient Catalan tradition dates back to ritual dances. It is included in the List of intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO.
The aim of the competition is to build the highest tower out of people.
No one should fall, otherwise it is eliminated from the competition. The prize winners in this year amounted to 16 thousand euros.
Festival in Tarragona is the first time after the unsuccessful referendum for independence of Catalonia, which took place on 1 October 2017. The Spanish authorities consider the referendum as illegal. Due to clashes with the police after the referendum affected more than 900 people.
The tradition of the “human castles” not formally tied to a political movement. However, in the arena of the contest unfurled a giant flag and sang the national anthem of Catalonia Els Segadors (“the Reapers”).
In any case, it’s beautiful. Look.
