"Castells" are human towers built traditionally in festivals at many locations within Catalonia. The monument reproduces to the smallest detail one of these "Castells". It is extremelly accurate since the sculptor, Francesc Anglès i Garcia, is a physician! "Castells" have different structures and names. This...More
