The Castelliers of Barcelona

In Plaça de la Vila de Gràcia, Barcelona there's a clock tower. It was originally constructed so you could see the time wherever you were in the Gracia district. Now it serves the residents in the high rise units that surround the square.

Maybe also the tower offers a challenge to the Castelliers of Barcelona who delight in building human towers. The human tower is not complete until the last member of the team has climbed to the top and raised a hand with four fingers extended to the sky. Maybe one day they'll climb so high that they will look down on the tower.
