On the second Sunday in May, the Aplec de la Sardana is held in a festive, convivial, springtime atmosphere. For a whole day, the municipal park is filled with people of all ages dancing to the music of the three participating coblas (traditional music groups). The premiere of sardanas dedicated to Olesa, a tribute to a composer, and a popular rice dish (arrozada) complement this event, organized by the ACF Olesa Sardanista association.
Olesa de Montserrat is a municipality rich in culture and tradition, located in the foothills of the mountain of Montserrat. Olesa de Montserrat is located in the north of the comarca (county) of Baix Llobregat, in the subcomarca of Montserratí, halfway between Barcelona and the Montserrat Monastery. The natural area of the municipality, with its beautiful and magnificent scenery, is bounded by the Llobregat river and the mountain chains of Sant Salvador de les Espases and Puigventós. Olesa’s roots are markedly agricultural; it is noted in particular for its cultivation of olives of the palomar or Olesan variety, native to the region, from which the famous Olesan oil is extracted.
