Castillos humanos / Human castles

Después de los Correfocs, los Castells y los Castellers son mi tradición catalana favorita. Fotografiarlos es difícil, porque siempre están rodeados de muchísimas personas y además necesitan espacio para las bases de los Castells. Lo mejor es presenciar una Diada Castellera, donde Castellers de diferentes barrios, pueblos o ciudades compiten y tratan de hacer Castells más complicados.

  1. Great photos!

    By the way, we must have been standing near each other when you took these. I have a similar photo of that little girl in your fifth picture. She’s so cute!
