These towers, or castells, were recently declared at UNESCO Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Test your balance by trying to create your own castell with your intimate tour group, limited to 7 people or fewer to ensure personal attention from your guide.
  • Discover bars and restaurants where locals go and taste a variety ofSpanish tapas. Later on, live a human tower experience, a unique Catalan tradition, surrounded by more than 100 human tower builders. You can even get involved and have a go yourself!
  • 5-hour evening tour in central Barcelona, full of food and popular culture.
  • Witness a live ‘human tower’ training -- a tradition noted as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of seven people ensures a more personalized experience
Meet your tour guide and small group of seven people or fewer in central Barcelona. Set out to discover the delicious secrets of tapas and pica-pica in an informal dinner; vegetarian options are available.

Visit the most popular food market in Spain, stopping by local venues to learn about Spanish gastronomy. Taste a variety of tapas and 'pica pica,' which roughly translates to 'a little bit of this, a little bit of that.' Chat with your guide about Spanish culinary traditions as you sample foods like montaditoporró and buñuelos

Continue your local experience by watching the building human tower, or castell. The practice of building castells is a feat of strength and community with deep roots in Catalonian culture. Castells have recently been named one of the UNESCO Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. 

After watching the display, you can choose to try it for yourself with your small group. Don the traditional outfit, and with the help of an instructor, learn how best to build la pinya, or the base of the tower made from human bodies.

Your tour ends in central Barcelona after five hours; you'll walk away with a souvenir photo of your group's castell.

I was very impressed with the precision and professionalism with which the tour was conducted. Our guide was very informative and engaging. The small group of 6 participants provided for a more cosy feel compared to those larger tour groups. During the tasting we sampled 3 different exquisite wines. Later on, we participated in a human tower display. Human tower builders are engaged in an activity that has been recognised by Unesco on a list of and quot;Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. and quot; Everything about the tour exceeded my expectations. I will recommend this for anyone visiting Barcelona.
