Margeners de Guissona, the “castell” group constructing a human tower of Guissona (Segarra), took part in the city’s carnival. The Castelians were dressed in sheep costumes alongside a shepherd, a dog and a black sheep. The group ranked third in the carnival costume contest.
The group was created in 2007 as a result of friends, their wives and children wanting to contribute to the cultural life of the region.
UNESCO added “living towers” to the list of the intangible cultural heritage of mankind.
