BARCELONA: PANTÀ DE VALLVIDRERA


A sunny sunday of September we joined one of the activities organized by Els Castellers de Sants (Borinots.cat, @Borinots) to celebrate its twentieth anniversary. The activity consisted of a 20km hike (10km round trip) to Pantà de Vallvidrera in Collserola. The beginning was from the district of Sants in Barcelona.

We had a great time because Els Castellers de Sants are really funny and cheerful people.
