Barcelona is officially on my list of places to visit after seeing the human towers of the La Merce Festival. These towers are constructed to see which team can build their tower the highest.

The human towers have been known to reach six to seven levels! To be completed the towers have to be topped off by a little boy or girl who must wave to the crowd. Check out the photos and the video. And you thought running with the bulls was dangerous. Stats for Acrobatic Building Competitions Trending: Older & Chilly
