Iconic moment when gay couple kissed during the creation of castells in Barcelona

There is a huge tradition in Barcelona to build human towers, and one gay couple decided to make the most of the iconic moment.

With one taking place in front of Barcelona’s City Hall, a same-sex couple on top of many people’s shoulders grabbed a kiss in front of the whole city.

Snapped by Mireia Comas, the photographer waited until the perfect time to take the picture.

Human towers, or Castells, date back to the 18th century and originate in Catalonia.

Teams, or “colles” in catalan, compete to build the tallest and most complicated towers.

The highest castell in history was a 10 floor structure with three people in each floor.
