“Accomplishment, challenge, trust, common purpose, leadership, passion, understanding, empathy…” are just some of the characteristics attributable to els castellers.
Strength, Balance, Courage and Wisdom
Collas castelleras are originally from Valencia’s community, originating from typical dances of different towns where small human towers were built. With time, these human towers were no longer linked to the typical dances and began creating their own groups and acting on their own. In 1801, at Valls de Cataluña, Colla Vella dels Xiquets de Valls was created, back then known as Colla dels Pagesos. Nowadays, this locality is considered the birth place of the castellera tradition and elscastells.
Currently, els castells appears as a renowned Catalan identity symbol and a great pride icon for the region and also contributes to society through work and effort.
Creating castells means creating human towers and for that it is necessary to have a good base pinya, formed by human capital that with their effort will support the weight of the castle. Above the base comes the tower, el tronc and is composed of all those people that will climb up to form the the tower. Trusting in one another, equilibrium and coordination are key. And finally the crowning, the Castell, goes el pom de dalt, who are mainly the smallest of the colla and undertake a greater level of risk. They must go up and stand at the highest point for the Castell for it to be valid.
