To support artistic production depicting Olesa and the municipal region and to promote local painters. This is the objective of the two competitions held during the Festa Major in Olesa: the Local Painting Contest and the Speed Painting Contest. Both are organized by the Fundació Escola Municipal d’Arts i Oficis (Municipal Arts and Trades School Foundation), a non-profit organization which, in addition to its educational activity, has a project aimed at promoting study of the arts, awakening public interest and creating a base for artistic activity.
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.
