Falcon human Tower building display by Colla Falcons de Barcelona. This is another kind of human tower building called the 'Falcon' discipline named after a Czech tradition called Sökol, which means falcon in Czech. Falcon structures were popular in Catalonia at the beginning of the 20th century, but then this kind of structure fell out of favour. In Barcelona a young group called the Barcelona Falcons revived this tradition of falcon human towers and performed first at the Saint Eulalia festivities in 2003.
