The Capgrossos de Mataró is a castellers group from the city of Mataró, in Maresme, founded in 1996. They wear a navy blue shirt and their best towers so far are the 2 of 9 with triple base, 5 of 9 with double base, Pillar of 8 with triple base, 3 of 9 with double base and the 4 of 9 with double base.
On November 1, 2010, they became the fifth group in history to reach an extra range castell, when completed the 2 of 9 with double base in Vilafranca on the same performance of Tots Sants in which the Castellers de Vilafranca downladed the first 2 of 8 of history.
The group chose the name Capgrossos because they wanted a different name from the other groups and referred to their city. The Capgròs word was referring to the historical way that the citizens of Barcelona called Mataró. The shirt is blue, like the flag of the city.
