The first Sunday in September marks the traditional beginning of the Aplec de Sant Salvador de les Espases. The setting for this gathering is incomparable: a hermitage dating back to the year 985 A.D., built using parts of what was once the Les Espases castle, with breathtaking views of the surrounding region.
At this traditional gathering, which includes a celebration of the Eucharist in the hermitage and a poetry competition, participants come together in a spirit of conviviality. The Aplec is organized by the Friends of Sant Salvador.

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.
