Every two years, people flock to Tarragona, Spain for the “Concurs de Castells.”
At the event, which is a Catalan tradition that dates back to the 1700’s, teams compete against each other in using their own bodies to build human towers–some of them consisting of hundreds of people. Talk about being a pillar of your community! When formed, the towers are very impressive. All of the people working together in unison to accomplish something that requires such physical and mental strength–it’s really something to see.
Take a look!
It’s like they’re swimming in an ocean made up of themselves.
Don’t look down!
That seems like an amazing time (for everyone that isn’t on the bottom, at least)!
