Spanish human castles…wait for it! (Video)

In the city of Tarragona, Spain, castellers gather every two years to see who can build the highest, most intricate human castles. It requires astonishing strength, finesse, and balls. There are obviously no lawyers in Spain. Worth the wait till 1:40.

    It is a Catalan tradition and the rate of injuries is very low. One can join it very easily.

    • someguy

      Catalans are one of the most retarded people in Europe

    "I could have killed 'em all, I could kill you. In town you're the law, out here it's me!. Don't push it!. Don't push it or I'll give you a war you won't believe. Let it go. Let it go!."

  • Tim

    Do you think that's what Jimi meant by Spanish Castle magic?

  • Non

    I'm spanish, and the green-dressed ones are from my town. I know a lot of people involved with these castles since they were kids, and all of them are still alive. For a kid who likes that, being the "anxeneta" (the kid on the top of the castle) is the greatest honor he could have. It's amazing to see it live, I recomend it to you if you ever have the chance!

  • Barthe

    I´m spanish too but not from Tarragona.

  • Teh Russian

    They do the same thing in French towns at the border of Spain, where the cultures bleed together. I saw a smaller one done in a town square, where the floor below was a cobbles. That would have hurt in a fall

    I think you need to edit the description from "There are obviously no lawyers in Spain." to "luckily there are no American lawyers in Spain."

  • Coldzilla

    "Mommy why are you putting that helmet on me?"

    "You want me to do WHAT???" 😮

  • Matt
