The Xiquets de Tarragona is an human towers group of the city of Tarragona. It was founded in September 1970, during the Santa Tecla Festival, and was created after the merge of the two groups of Tarragona at that point: the Colla Vella de Tarragona and the Colla Nova de Sant Magí. They received the Creu de Sant Jordi from the Generalitat de Catalunya in 2001.
After the reunification of the two groups, the shirt could not be any of the old ones. It was chosen a very unique design: a striped shirt due to the unification of the old bands in white and red.
In 2015 during the Santa Tecla Festival they crowned their first 5 of 9 double based and the Pillar of 8 with triple base, completed along with the 2 of 9 with triple base and the 3 of 9 with double base, their best performance so far.
