Nearly 6000 spectators gathered at an old bull ring in Tarragona on the first weekend of October over the weekend for its annual castells competition, where teams made of up to hundreds of people collaborate to build human towers. Leading teams compete against each other for the first place in different categories where towers are scored on difficulty.
