Every year over 20,000 people visit the ‘Concurs de Castells’, the Human Tower Competition in Catalonia’s Tarragona region. Scroll down for the video.
These stunning photos were taken by David Oliete, 28, born in Tarragona, lived in Cardiff and Barcelona and now based in his hometown again. His Facebook page can be found here.
David Oliete said that “The atmosphere at the Concurs is amazing. Absolutely crowded, it is quite difficult to take pictures from the ground, but the emotions and feelings that the castells transmit make any effort worth it. Without a doubt, the Castells are one of the most impressive and beautiful cultural traditions to take pictures of.”
