Starting in the Plaça de Fèlix Figueras i Aragay (in front of the Town Hall), we take the road to the Salvador Boada municipal sports center. From there, we continue toward the Beca Cross, the Camí des Bruguerols trail, the Coll de les Espases hill and the El Fideuer plain, in the municipality of Vacarisses. We then take the Camí del Mimó, following this trail across the north-facing slope of the Puigventós mountain and up to Sant Pere Sacama, and then downhill passing close by the Puigventós farmhouse, Oriol Hill and the Samper Trail. Now entering the urban core, we will pass by the Balconada residential area (known as El Daina) down to the street Carrer de la Riera, to finish the route back at the Plaça de Fèlix Figueras i Aragay.
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.
