The folkloric tradition par excellence of the Penedès is Els Castellers, that by its beauty and the anger and solidarity provokes a great passion and fidelity between their followers and causes admiration between the foreigners.
The Catalan human castles have two centuries of history and they are prepared to enter in the new millennium with an unusual force that it combines total participation, risk and beauty.
The students of these traditions say that these castles are born from the Earth and popular spontaneity, and that is a symbol and a rite that moves away the dramatic quality because its natural frame is the festive thing. Because there, in the celebration, is where better they express the union of feelings and the desire of success. During the summer, in all the towns of the region, there are “castellers” activities during the town yearly celebrations.
