As its name suggests, hiking is one of the activities of Olesa’s Catalan Hiking Club (UEC). Throughout the year, the club organizes various hiking trips, not only around the municipality but also on hiking trails in other regions.
The club’s set trips every year are the carrying of the nativity scene to and from the Saba Cross, the full-moon nighttime walk (first Saturday in June with a full moon), and the Summer 3000 (to a 3,000-meter peak in the Pyrenees in late July or early August).
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.
