La Mercè 2018: Parade and historic human tower day

  • Things to do

Time Out says

Make your way to Palau de la Virreina on Sunday 23, the day before La Mercè feast day, for an introduction to the Catalan tradition of human tower building, curated by Castellers de Barcelona. The hosts take off in a parade that heads to Plaça Sant Jaume, where they'll build their 'castells' (human towers) along with invited casteller groups, the Minyons de Terrassa and Colla Joves Xiquets de Valls. If watching people climb on top of one another is your thing, look no further – this is an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy that art in its purest form.
