Olèrdola is a municipality in the comarca of the Alt Penedèsmarker in Cataloniamarker, Spainmarker. It is situated on the northern side of the Garraf massif, and the highest point of the municipality is the Puig de l'Àliga at 468 m.

Olèrdola castle controlled the area of the Penedès Depressionmarker in the Early Middle Ages, reaching the height of its significance when its castle dominated the region under the control of the rebellious Mir Geribert, "Prince of Olèrdola". Its importance declined from the twelfth century and its administrative role was taken by Vilafranca del Penedèsmarker. The territory has been inhabited since the Neolithic period, and Iberic and Roman remains are juxtaposed with the ruins of the castle. The unusual, circular, roman chapel of the Sant Sepulcre is near La Plana Rodona.
