On the last day of the war, the Christians seem to be defeated, but St.George leads them to victory.

  • Castellers de Vilafrenca

    Castellers de Vilafrenca is a sport that is played in Spian where the main objective is to stack as many people into a human pyramid to win. Although it says the date is September 14, the activity has started as early as August, and as late as January. Starting in 1994, the tradition now has around 400 members. Their biggest feat came in 2005, when they built a tower called "torre de nou amb folre", now considered the most dangerous tower they have ever built.
