Castells - Colles Castelleres de Catalunya

Estrella Damm

Human towers, or castells, are one of the most spectacular traditional manifestations in Catalonia, and ultimate expression of the Catalan popular culture. They are an ancestral combination of strength, overcome and fraternity and are unique in the world. Keeping its commitment with culture and its strong bond with the Mediterranean, since 1997, Estrella Damm supports the Coordinadora de Colles Castelleres de Catalunya (the coordinating body for human tower clubs in Catalonia). Estrella Damm, through a sponsorship agreement, helps promoting this practice that is so peculiar to us.

In 2010, Estrella Damm also supported the teams, or colles, during the candidacy for the recognition of human towers as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO, by being present at the key moments and organizing the celebration party at their old factory, called Antiga Fàbrica Estrella Damm. Since then, the company carries on working together with the teams to preserve one of the most deeply rooted traditions in Catalonia.
