Now I'm working in.... Human Towers! (Castellers)

Hi friends!! I'm working now in my BCN page. I'll try to find all the Castellers events in 2004 in BCN to all the VT friends.

If you have never seen the astonishing castells, there is a chance to see them live during the all the year. In Barcelona there are 5 different groups of people buiding human towers (called in catalan as a "colles"). The most important festival in Barcelona is in september, during the Merce Festivals but there are shows in , february, june, august, and october.
If you have any doubt about the way they are made, please don t be affread to ask anyone in the square. Please, keep your glass off if it happens that you are invited to place yourself on the basis to give a hand.

The Guell Park

One of the magical place's in the city. Builded between 1900 and 1914 by Antoni Gaudi. 1984 was declared as a World Heritage by UNESCO. You must see the monumental main entrance, the steps and the dragon. Worth a visit at the Sala Hipostila, a hall of 96 columns serves as a support for the upper square.
Finally you can walk to the three crosses hill to get one of the bests views of the city. Sit and relax.
