Although our past few days were wonderful when it comes with discovering an amazing Spain, the weather was not our best friend all the time, the moment came to explore the beach & the sun a little bit.
Castell "is a human tower built traditionally in festivals at many locations within Catalonia. At these festivals, several colles castelleres (groups who construct towers) often succeed in building and dismantling a tower's structure. On November 16, 2010, castells were declared by UNESCO to be among the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity"(Source)
"Although based on the earlier traditional Muixeranga of Algamesi, in Valencia, the tradition of castells within Catalonia originated in the Ball dels Valencians (Valencian Dance) in Valls, near the city of Tarragona, first documented in 1712. Over the course of the 18th century, they spread to other towns and cities in the area, including Vilafranca del Penedes and Tarragona, though it was not until the last 50 years that the practice of building castells began to spread to the rest of Catalonia"(Source)
We had a great dinner at this restaurant and on top of all the fish dishes we tried we had a very special dessert at the end: Pina de la Casa con crema quemada

It's a seaside town in Catalonia close to Barcelona. It's charm lies in the white houses which reminded me a lot of Greece. I took a short walk around to shoot some pictures until our food was coming at the tiny restaurant called La Karmela and was very impressed of the narrow streets and the whole architecture of the houses around the church. One detail interesting to know is that this town is one of the most gay & lesbian friendly places in the world.
