CATALAN FOLKLORE

CASTELLS

A castell is a human tower built traditionally in festivals at many locations within Catalonia. At these festivals, several "colles castelleres" or teams often succeed in building and sustain a tower's structure for a certain length of time.

Origin
The tradition of building human towers originated in Valls, near the city of Tarragona, in the southern part of Catalonia towards the end of the 18th century. Later it developed a following in other regions of Catalonia and even Majorca, and currently has become very popular in parts of Spain. However, the best and most skilled castellers are still found near Tarragona.

In Catalan the word castell means castle.

A castell is considered a success when stages of its assembling and disassembling, can be done in complete succession. The final assemblement occurs when everyone has climbed into their designated places, where the enxaneta, the last person, often a child has climbed up to the top, and has raised one hand with four fingers erect, said to symbolize the stripes of the Catalan flag. The exaneta then climbs down to the other side of the castell, where every other person of the castell can then climb down in order from highest to lower parts of the castell to safety.
Aside from the people who actually climb to make upper parts of the tower, others are needed to form the pinya, base of the castell, to sustain its weight. These people, often men [2] act as a 'safety net' if the tower structure collapses and people from the upper parts of the tower are then able to fall on them, cushioning their impact when compared directly hitting the ground.

Cada sección del foro está destinada a una cosa, no se trata de prohibición sino de orden, estas fotos no tienen nada que ver con proyectos y construcciones en el área metropolitana de barcelona, y todo lo que estas poniendo no tiene que ver con el esto del tema si te fijas un poco, estos han de ir en la sección de fotos o de viajes. hay gente que le interesa ver fotos pués va a fotos, otra gente le interesa ver metros pués va a la sección de metros, pero esto es para ver los proyectos actuales de la ciudad pués la gente que entra quiere ver eso, proyectos o construcciones actuales. Nada más.

Aquest fil és per a tractar projectes arquitectònics i urbanístics, així com construcció en general. En principi s'hi parla de projectes futurs, en desenvolupament o recentment inaugurats, tot i que no està mal vist penjar fotos d'edificis que ja fa un temps que van ser inaugurats, com la Torre Agbar o l'Edifici Fòrum, però mai d'edificis antics com el Palau de la Música o el Palau Reial, per exemple.

I, evidentment, no és aquest el lloc per a tractar temes de cultura i folcore barceloní o català. Ja hi ha els fils apropiats en el fòrum internacional.

les fotos dels castells molan molt, però jo també penso que no són per aquest fòrum.
