The planned Llobregat Path will open a route along the banks of the Llobregat river, from the La Puda spa to the Abrera treatment plant. And in Olesa, it will run from the La Puda path to the La Mona rock. The project is being funded by the Barcelona provincial government, and will facilitate the conservation of this valuable cultural heritage.
The development of the Llobregat Path project is a necessary condition for the completion of the Baix Llobregat Paths Plan being implemented by the regional council, and when it is completed (in approximately two years), it will make it possible to walk along the riverbank from Berga all the way to the Prat de Llobregat. From a tourism perspective, the path will facilitate cycling, horse riding or hiking on foot along a stretch of approximately 200 kilometers.
It will be carried out in two stages. The first entails the approval of the project and the implementation of part of the works, while the second may also include the recovery of an emblematic element that forms part of the historic heritage of the municipality: the walkway that used to link Olesa to the Colonia Sedó textile mill.
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.
