The Tower

The 5 of 8 with single base is an 8 Level tower composed by eight levels and 5 people per level with a single base. It is the tower known as “the cathedral of the castells” due to it’s dimension. It is crowned by two bending childs and two pairs but with only one crowner.

The first 3 of ten with triple base was crowned by the Castellers de Vilafranca on November 15th of 1998 at the Plaça de la Vila of Vilafranca del Penedès.

One week later, in their XX feast, the group Minyons de Terrassa completed this tower for first time in the history of castells, at the Plaça Vella of Terrassa.
