The arts and culture of Catalonia will make your head spin. There is such diversity, in terms of style, of type, of culture, and of traditions, that you'll have to limit yourself to just a few museums. The local folklore shouldn't be missed either and each neighbourhood is brimming with authenticity and its own specific outlook on the world. You'll quickly understand why so many famous artists were inspired by this region and found their muse here. The region also has a most peculiar and totally unique tradition that you might just have the opportunity to witness: the Castellers ('Castell' being the Catalan word for castle). These are human towers of various proportions and sizes, at the summit of which is perched the Enxaneta (generally a young child) in a precarious position that defies the laws of gravity. It's a true piece of good fortune to be able to see one of these impressive human 'Castles'.
