In other posts, I've shown you a bit of Tora... Today I'll show you the whole metropolitan area.
Called Bell-Nord, this is a peculiar kind of metropolis. Tora, Besurt, Ginesta and Vange are old medieval cities, built very near one from another... so much than after the centuries have become a single metropolis (maybe is to soon to call it a metropolies, but i'm a believer... ). Beech, Arc de Mar, Muixa or Nea Tora are examples of new cities, with no history before 1920.
The public transportation is very important for Bellnordians -Green is cool! They say.
If you're planning to visit the city, this map may help you, not to lose yourself...
I'm pretty sure, if you visited this nice spot on the mediterranean sea, you bought at least some of this postcards...
Postcards from Bell-nord
Tora, the oldest town, the first... the one and only. It is the perfect city for an artist, a designer, a melancholic writer... Tora offers the best cultural scene, under the blue light of the sea, just perfect!
Built mostly on the 70's Nea Tora is a little less poetic than it's neighbor. Hipsters love it anyway, so decadent...
Arc de Mar is far less green than the rest of the cities in Bell-Nord. Runned by speculators, here there's no room for trees!
Vange is the smallest of the old medieval towns od Bell-Nord, and the richer one. Look at their roundabouts, so fancy... ohh, and the even have their own Apple Store!
This city was founded in 1920, by some thiefs; they say than a night between jokes, beers and an epic after party (still recalled), they decided to set the city. The history of the city is easy: "-Every piece of land will be always sold to the better payer. Then, now and always"
To be continued...
