Olesa de Montserrat

Province: Barcelona | Shire: Baix Llobregat | Inhabitants: 24.458 | Extension: 16,6 Km2 | Altitude: 124 m

Located in one of the most unique and symbolic places in all of Catalonia, at the foot of Montserrat Mountain, the town of Olesa breathes tradition and culture in an environment rich in heritage and landscape. We discovered the Clock Tower, the hermitage of San Salvador de las Espadas, the Ribes Blaves area of high geological value because you can see a fault between 400 and 450 million years old and two references of the medieval legacy: the hermitage and the castle of San Pedro Sacama and the site of Mas Vilar.

Olesa de Montserrat has marked agricultural roots: the cultivation of the Palomar or Olesana variety olive trees stands out, from which its famous oil known throughout the world is extracted.

This municipality is also characterized by the theatrical performance of La Pasión.
