On Rambla Nova in Tarragona there is a curious statue which depicts a number of men standing close together, forming a base for some other men to form a tower on top of them. Around these men there are a few more guys encouraging them. (And they are part of the statue. Then there are some tourists climbing the statue.) According to a plaque, it was popular to form such towers in this part of Catalonia in older days.
