The Tarragona Human Tower Competition is an event carried out by the best teams in the country and it is held every two years. One of the main attractions of this event is the fact that it is the only day of the season that all the towers are scored on difficulty. This fact means that the leading teams compete against each other for first place in the final classification. Nevertheless, all the participating teams find the Competition the best event to try out their best constructions.
The XXVI Tarragona Human Tower Competition, organised by the City Hall, will be held on September 25th of 2016 in Torredembarra and on October 1st and 2nd in the Tarraco Arena Plaça of Tarragona, with the participation of 42 teams.
Nearly 6.000 spectators enjoy the most important tower building event, which also enjoys wide coverage in the Catalan media and, ever more frequently, in international media. In short, the Human Tower Competition is a first class event and a magnificent opportunity to enjoy human tower building, an example of Catalan culture declared Cultural and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
