Santa Eulàlia 2017: Diada Castellera
Diada Castellera

It's a day of human towers ('castells') by various groups of 'castellers' who climb up the bodies of their comrades to build the impressive towers that will have you holding your breath and cheering when they're succesful or gasping when they fall. Groups from all over the city meet up in Plaça Nueva at 10am to parade to Plaça Sant Jaume. In C/ del Bisbe, in front of the Santa Eulàlia door of the Cathedral, the groups will stop to honour the patron saint. At 11am in Plaça Sant Jaume they'll start making their towers in front of the balcony of the City Hall to kick off the season with the first castells day of the year.
