The Construction of the Largest Human Tower in History-Spanish Govinda

The Castellers de Vilafranca is a cultural and sporting association whose main objective is to build castells (human towers). 

The group was founded in 1948 in response to the increased interest in human tower building in Vilafranca del Penedèsin (Catalonia, Spain), a Catalan tradition that has evolved since the 18th century. Nowadays, the Castellers de Vilafranca have about 400 active  tower building members of all ages, with no discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, sex or social status. They share the common goal of building towers, democratic values, cooperation and team work, a constant desire to surpass themselves. Music: Polaris by Bostic.
