One of the best human towers event of the year in Tarragona takes place after the day of Santa Tecla, the day of La Mercè.
It’s one thing to see one of the most iconic events of Santa Tecla parading down the streets of the old city and other to see it from the inside of a shop.
The day of Santa Tecla begins at 7 in the morning with the toc de matinades a solemn tune played by the grallers and aimed at getting everyone out of bed.
Santa Tecla is home to traditions and mayhem, the latter provided by the our Diables which gets better every year!
During the ten days celebration that is Santa Tecla several gastronomic hot points spring up around the city. The most notable and best of all is Santa Teca a mini gastro and musical feast which delivers local top quality produce in true indie style.
Last night Tarragona became an incubator of dragons which marched through the streets of the old city enveloped by terrifying light.
