Description

Go on a tour of a family cava winery from the owner himself! He will explain to you the traditions of his forefathers that they meticulously safeguard and keep alive. Discover the impressive underground cellars, while your guide will show you how their cava is made from organic agricultural practices.

You will witness the entire process of making cava at the DO Alella, from the pressing of the grapes to the fermentation in the cellars! Cava is the Catalan version of champagne, and Barcelona is renowned worldwide for originating and creating cava in the finest quality.

The DO Alella boasts of the widest varieties of grape among all the wine-growing regions of the world. You will get the chance to sample the famous cava, and experience its flavors that have gained it international fame.

Afterwards, take part in making history at the Castellers festival. This time-honored Catalan tradition has been declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, and this tour gives you the chance to be a part of the human towers created in the festival.

Albeit relatively new, the Human Tower tradition is slowly growing into a classic tradition, having been around for more than 200 years. It is considered the liveliest expression of Catalan culture, with a total of 200 people comprising the human tower, with a brave and light enxaneta, a child of 5 years old, crowning the top of the tower.

Be at one with the people of Barcelona and the courage, teamwork, spirit of improvement, self-esteem and camaraderie that is manifested in the human tower. You will be given a traditional Castellers costume and a practice session before you can be part of La Pinya, the bottom part of the tower that serves as the sturdy foundation for all the people on top. End the day with a souvenir picture of your human tower and memories to last a lifetime.
