Should I see castellers when in Barcelona?

Well my answer is obviously "yes". If at all possible you should make an effort to enjoy the remarkable achievements of these pillars of Catalan culture. But although I've seen hundreds of castells built over the last twelve years and have even been privileged to help build a few I've never seen anything quite like this.

We saw two teams yesterday in the Catedral square, definitely worth it!

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Nes.

Did anyone see the event at Moll de la Fusta?

Not much in Barcelona this coming weekend but anybody heading to Vilanova i la Geltru for some beach time or to Vilafranca del Penedes for some wine research might get a present surprise. Castellers de Barcelona are in Vilafranca on 3rd August which might be why there is no "Cultura Catalana a Barcelona" scheduled for this week. Plenty of activity for those prepared to travel, though. Even as far as Verona in Italy. Castellers are definitely spreading the word this year.

I've been lax in keeping this up to date (though others have highlighted some recent events) but this 'weekend' has

with Castellers de la Vila de Gracia and

Colla Jove de Castellers de Sitges

with, I think, a Pilar Caminant from Placa del Sol

and
