The “Stacked Tower” originated in Catalonia, Spain at the end of the 18th century, and is the most traditional folklore festival in the region. In the local celebrations, “towers” dressed in white pants and black cloth waisted up layer upon layer of arhats to build a tall “tower.” In its more than 200 years of development, the sport has always been based on the motto of “strength, composure, bravery, and rationality”.
On July 5, 2015, the Taohuazhuang Tower Team composed of 450 Chinese and 193 Spaniards broke the title of [Tallest Tower] Guinness World Records in Deqing, Zhejiang with a 9-story Tower. The total height of the tower is 13 meters.
The record-breaking Taohuazhuang Renta team was established in March 2010. The original intention was to enrich the spare time of the internal employees of Antai (Deqing) Fashion Co., Ltd., to make contact between people more frequent and intensive, thereby enhancing team cohesion.
The human tower is a sport that requires close cooperation between people. The more people there are, the more people need to cooperate. Coordination requires long-term training and on-the-spot performance. However, there are too many factors that can affect the success of the human tower. It can be said that strength and luck are indispensable.
In China, the origins of the “stacked Arhats” can be traced back to the Northern and Southern Dynasties, and modern times have flourished in Spanish culture.
