Throughout the month of September, the town resounds to the sound of “colles de diables” (“devil groups”) from all over Catalonia. Percussion and fire define the Olesa Tremola festival, which is organized by the Diablots d'Olesa. The rhythm of the percussion performances on the first day is the prelude to the great Devils’ Fire Run held a week later, when gunpowder, firecrackers and flames shake Olesa to its very foundations.
Month of September
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.
