DESCRIPTION

Do you like to discover authentic, local traditions when traveling? And to stay away from the tourist masses? Our Catalan Traditions and Customs Experience will take you on a unique 4-hour journey into Barcelona’s local life. You’ll learn about food traditions in a typical Catalan restaurant, discover local customs with a guided walking tour of a non-touristy neighborhood and end up the experience participating in a unique, private human tower rehearsal.

Catalans are famous worldwide for their incredible festivities, where atypical parades and public shows are held all over town. But the most impressive of all local traditions is definitely the Castellers (literally “castles”, more known as human towers), where people climb on top of other people’s shoulders without protection, sometimes attaining 10 “floors” of people.

Assisting to a Castellers rehearsal is something hard to get access to, even for the locals! Are you ready to dive deep into Catalan traditions and to have an unforgettable experience?
