A week filled with ceremonies and activities to foster the public use of the Catalan language and to promote Catalan popular culture. With the intention of involving as many of Olesa’s cultural associations as possible, in the first week of October the CAL (Catalan Language Association) organizes the Correllengua, with book launches, talks, popular culture displays, Catalan classes, poetry and literature recitals, children’s shows, and films about the personality being honored that year.
First week of October
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.
