The Castellers de la Vila de Gràcia [Human Towers] achieve their best performance

The Castellers de la Vila de Gràcia have achieved their best performance to date during the human tower day of Gràcia festival. The group completed and dismantled eight levels of five people, nine levels of three with ‘folre’, nine levels of four with ‘folre’ and three pillars of five.

The Xiquets de Reus, the Xicots de Vilafranca and the Minyons de Terrassa were the guest groups and also successfully completed and dismantled their towers.

The Castellers de la Vila de Gràcia are very popular in the festival programme and participate in several events. Other activities include the popular walking pillar on 20 August, from Plaça del Sol to Plaça de la Vila, where a human tower performance will then be held.

They also form part of the Association of Cultural Groups of Gràcia and are very much involved in the organisation of the festival. Since 2001 they have been in charge of decorating Plaça de la Vila.
