Rosa avui amb els castellers de Berga y del Poble Sec a la Placa Monastiraki
Probably you already know about the Human Catalan Castles a three centuries old tradition... Urban Athens Collective was there...
Rosa our guide took the chance and our guests enjoyed this unique event the Castellers del Poble Sec and Castellers de Berga from Barcelona who are invited from the Cultural Group of Ipati. Athens and Greece has an old historical connection with Catalans, as trough medieval years Athens and many places in Greece were occupied from Catalans who were invited from the Byzantine emperor as mercenaries.
This unique effort of the human castles is bases on strength, balance and the common values of the members.
The Castellers del Poble Sec and Castellers de Berga will be at Ypati tomorrow 12 August and they'll give also a performance exclusively for the refugees in the camp in Thermopyles
