You need that…
A Castells is a human tower built traditionally in festivals at many locations within Catalonia. A castell is considered a success when stages of its assembling and disassembling, can be done in complete succession. The assembly is complete once all castellers have climbed into their designated places, and the enxaneta climbs into place at the top and raises one hand with four fingers erect, in a gesture said to symbolize the stripes of the Catalan flag. The enxaneta then climbs down the other side of the castell, after which the remaining levels of castellers descend in highest-to-lowest order until all have reached safety.

I thought about this week Photo Challenge when I saw this Castell in Cathedral Square last Saturday in Barcelonoa, because its structure is a demonstration of how supports a half to the other to reach the top climbing from one end and climbing down by the other. Without the support that both halves are given, it would be impossible to obtain a Castell of this type.
Next I leave a photo gallery of the Castell’s construction process.
Never try this at home 🙂
