On the first Sunday in February, lovers of the sardana come together at the Winter Aplec. Organized by the ACF Olesa Sardanista association, dancers move to the music of two coblas (traditional music groups), Cobla Vila d'Olesa and other well-known group, who liven up the Sunday evening. To escape the winter cold, the event takes place inside the local center of the Catalan Hiking Club (UEC).
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.
