In a city like Barcelona that has increasingly higher pollution rates and higher tourism, sustainable and 100% ecological leisure proposals such as the one proposed by the company www.tourisimo.es are appreciated.
Their initiative consists of a guided tour in 100% electric microcars, two-seat Renault Twizy 80, on a route planned beforehand outside the city, to visit one or two viewpoints (according to the contracted tour) to reach the base from the impressive Torre de Collserola.
In the most complete package www.tourisimo.es also includes a visit to the interior of the Torre de Collserola, where an elevator ascends to 115 meters above its site in the Turó de la Vilana, to contemplate spectacular views of the city of Barcelona.
El Mirador is located 560 meters above sea level, and is the best observatory in Barcelona.
According to Marvyn Johnson, originally from the Shetland Islands, (Scotland) and promoter of this initiative, he comments: «we offer safe, fun, exciting and cultural tours to places where other tour operators do not arrive.»
He has lived in Barcelona for the last 10 years and feels a true passion for the city, its history and its surroundings.
Marvyn has taken many friends and family over the years to see Barcelona from the highest point of the Collserola Natural Park, and to witness their enthusiasm. The appreciation for this enclave of the city led him to create www.tourisimo.es, to share this experience with many more people.
Natural Park of Collserola
In 1976, the Metropolitan General Plan was approved, which was born with the aim of improving the environmental quality of the city of Barcelona and curbing the excessive urban development, defining large spaces that must be preserved for the sustainability of the city of Barcelona.
This measure fully affects the Collserola mountain range, and in 1987 the Parc de Collserola was created, managed by the Diputación de Barcelona and the nine municipalities that comprise it.
In 2010, the Collserola mountain range is declared «Natural Park of the Sierra de Collserola».
