Folk culture and tradition in Olesa holds a very special place for the associations of the municipality, but what is understood generally as culture and traditional cultural consumption can be found in the Biblioteca Santa Oliva, the municipality’s public library, which was opened in 1936 and has never shut its doors since. In 1994, it was transferred to its current site, located beside the Town Hall in the same building as the Casa de Cultura cultural center.
Lovers of reading, music and quality cinema can make themselves at home!
What makes the library particularly special, apart from the cultural legacy contained on its shelves, is Joan Brossa’s Lletra ballarina (“Dancing Letter”), which can be viewed in the reading room. This is an artwork by the poet that can only be seen in our library, whose doors are open to all.
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.
