Visit the gardens of the Palau Robert and you'll discover a photo exhibition that examines the very Catalan tradition of castellers, or human towers.
It is a visual homage to those individuals and groups who have caught the human tower bug and spend much of their free time climbing on each other's shoulders to see how high they can make their towers reach. The show coincides nicely with the first anniversary since the castells were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The exhibition features a series of images taken from the new book, Castells i castellers. Una voluntat col·lectiva (Human towers and their participants. A collective will), which aims to bring the public into the world of these cultural constructions that represent effort, strength, balance and art, and have captivated spectators around the world.
