Charleroi, una ciudad que atrae turistas por su fealdad

Cada ciudad, a la hora de promocionarse para el mercado turístico, utiliza diferentes estrategias y expone sus mejores rasgos. Pero, curiosamente, Charleroi, en Bélgica, es denominada por los holandeses como “La Ciudad más fea del Mundo” cuando se trata de ofertar “safaris urbanos”.

Charleroi nació como una localidad industrial avocada a la producción de carbón y al hierro; actualmente rodean la ciudad grandes pilas de escorias abandonadas, memoria de aquella época productiva, y fábricas fantasmas que contribuyen a darle un aspecto lúgubre.

Así entonces, el circuito urbano permite escalar pilas de carbón, recorrer aquellas fábricas abandonadas, visitar el lugar donde la madre del pintor Magritte se suicidó o conocer la historia de la primera mujer blanca, nacida aquí, que se inmoló con explosivos en Bagdad, en un atentado.

Es esta una manera diferente de hacer turismo y muy frecuente últimamente en vista del éxito que está teniendo. Será cuestión de animarse.
