    On the other hand, it’s spain!
    They have bull fighing and the bull race in Pamplona :)

  • Marga

    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!!
