Day of Human tower and Walking Pillar

Midday on the Mercè day is characterised by the long waited Descent of the Pillars. At one o’clock, in the plaça de les Cols, the human tower groups Colla Castellera Xiquets de Tarragona,  Colla Castellera Jove Xiquets de Tarragona,  Xiquets del Serrallo and the Castellers de Sant Pere i Sant Pau get prepared. In this performance each group offers two towers, a pillar and then the walking pillars, by order of antiquity, go up the twenty steps of the Seu, go down again and make a file in the carrer Major trying to reach the City Hall.
