The caramelles are an alive festival, rooted and widespread throughout Catalonia and constitute one of the identifying characteristics of Catalan customs.
On Sant Julia de Vilatorta the caramelles originated within the Confraternity of the Roser, founded in 1590 on our people and sealed by the founding bull dated 23 February 1592 which is preserved in the Archives of Vic.
Since then, every year without interruption, has been practicing this tradition and has become one of the main festivals of our calendar.
The song "Els Goigs del Roser" were the origen and still are today the center of our festival. The "Els Gooigs del Roser" text, transmitted by oral tradition, literally coincides with the manuscrit 854, fols.113 i manuscrit 854, fols.114 fifteenth century, preserved in the Library of Catalonia, which is the oldest document of the "Els Goigs del Roser".
The song that is sung in Sant Julia is native structure is close to the medieval mode first.
