Mercè 2014: Castellers (human towers)

  • Things to do

Time Out says

Although the the human towers are a tradition with roots in the south of Catalonia, the Mercè converts Barcelona into the place to be to see the 'castellers' in action. Every year these daring groups come to the city to pay tribute to the patron saint with their best efforts. Of course the hosts of the party will be there as well – the Barcelona Castellers will build towers along with other invited guests: Terrassa Minyons and the Vilafranca Castellers. If you hang out waiting for groups of castellers in Plaça de Sant Jaume, you'll get to see them parading in from the Palau de la Virreina.
