Every "castell"
has three
main parts:
"La pinya":
as the pine cone, they have to stick together to make the "castell" stronger!
"El tronc":
the trunk is the most visible part of the "castell" can be many levels high.
"El pom de dalt":
The last three levels are assembled by the youngest of the group.
The "castellers"
are dressed with:
the "colla" ´s
a black sash
white trousers
a bandana
