Built by sculptor Francesc Anglès I Garcia, the Monumento a Los Castellers is 11 meters tall and is dedicated to Castellers (team or groups that can form human towers). The word “Castell” comes from “Castle” and is simply the art of using human strength and a strong sense of team to form tall towers. In Spain, this is more of a heritage sport and was revived in 2003 when championships and competitions were formed to judge castell teams.
This particular sculpture is constructed to resemble the average human size and consist of 7 tiers of human figures forming a circle to make the tower. The entire monument has 222 figurines! The best part about the monument? It has faces of famous people including the faces of Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, and Pau Casals!
A small distance away from the main tower, there are figurines of musicians along with a statue of the boy who would be the last one to climb the Castell (seen patiently awaiting his turn). The amazing thing about this monument is just how lively it is- almost like real people who were caught in the act!
