Blimey, once every two years the city of Tarragona in Spain transforms into the Concurs de Castells aka the most important human tower competition in Catalonia. The contestants take this very seriously since it’s one of the most important cultural traditions where people have a chance to showcase team-work, strength, balance and courage. On the day hundreds of men and women in teams attempt to build human towers. The higher and more difficult structure they come up with, the more points the team gets. Every human tower is usually between six to ten levels high. Teams are made of between 100 to 500 women and men.
Mind-blowing, don’t you think? Have you seen anything like that before?
P.S: Plus, Holi festival and lantern floating ceremony in Hawaii.
P.P.S: Midsummer night in Poland.
