Falcons de Catalunya - human towers
Another kind of human tower building is called the Falcon discipline named after a Czech tradition called "Sökol" which means falcon. Falcon structures were popular in Catalunya at the beginning of the 20th century, but then fell out of favour. In Barcelona a young group called the Barcelona Falcons has revived this tradtion of making falcon structures and they peformed first at the Saint Eulalia festivities in 2003. You can often see the Falcon castellers at Catalan festivals and especially at La Merce Festival in Barcelona in September.
