Its collection is made up of around 300,000 monographs, some 6,700 newspaper publications, 1,500 manuscripts, 400 incunabula, around 400 antique maps, and important collections of prints and song sheets. Notable among the manuscripts is the Llibre Vermell (Red Book), written in the 14th and 15th centuries, with a miscellany of theological and devotional texts and writings on other geographical, cultural and social topics.
Another noteworthy article is a sheet with a fragment of the Forumiudicum, a 12th-century Catalan translation of a compilation of Visigoth laws, one of the earliest known texts in Catalan. The library specializes in humanities and religious sciences, world history, the history of Catalonia and the countries of the Crown of Aragon, and important works on the Spanish Civil War.
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.
