Fiesta de Sta. Eulalia, February 2003

 Gegantes. The sashes are in protest against the upcoming American attach on Iraq.


Gegantes -- (R to L) little Eulalia, Jaume II (ancient king of Catalunya), and his queen.

 

Lion Gegante. This one took two people to carry it.

 

Dancing Gegantes. The Roman governor who tortured little Eulalia, and a country woman.

 

A castellera team enters the square with a 4-high moving tower.

The kid on top was really scared -- he climbed down before they got to their place in the square!

 

A troupe of castelleras begin the third tier

 

Seven tiers high! Note the single tower inside the main one.

 

Another group forms the fourth tier..

 

The victory wave -- seven high!.
