Fira de Sant Jordi (Sant Jordi Fair)


Different stalls fill the public spaces adorned with Catalan flags to commemorate the Diada de Sant Jordi, patron saint of Catalonia. In keeping with tradition, locals come out to buy a book and a rose, the symbol of love, passion, courtesy and friendship.

 

Although it is not a public holiday, a festive springtime atmosphere pervades the streets of Olesa, which are filled with color. It is a day when the people stroll through the streets and take part in activities organized for the Diada in the municipal park, where you will also find local authors launching and signing their latest books.

OLESA TOURISM

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.
