“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!

    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!!
