“Casteller” by photographer Mike Randolph. In the city of Tarragona, Spain, castellers gather every two years to see who can build the highest, most intricate human castles. This is so intense!

    Castells is a tradition from Catalunya, any animal is killed… it’s beautiful, bull fighting is a shame.

  • gale

    Catalunya, is not Spain

    • Tarragona is a city in the south of Catalonia in the north-east of Spain

      • Yes, but Catalonia is a country with a culture and a tongue own. This is important for us.Bull fighting is a shame. Thanks Jeff.

  • Castellers is a tradition from the catalan community, Catalunya derives from the term “Land of Castles” having evolved from the term castlà, the ruler of a castle. This has deep roots!!
