York: El secreto mejor guardado de Inglaterra

Al recorrer las distintas ciudades de Inglaterra se aprecia que la mayoría de ellas poseen variados atractivos. Museos, ferias, mercados, vida nocturna, adelantos tecnológicos, medios de transporte de excelencia, etc. Más allá de esto, y quizás por el perfil claramente industrial, no se trata de un país bello. París, Roma o Viena, por ejemplo, son ciudades estéticamente mucho más atractivas a la vista que Londres.
Sin embargo hay una excepción que confirma la regla: se trata de York, una pequeña ciudad en el noreste del país. Es, para mi gusto, la más hermosa de Inglaterra, dotada de una armonía estética y arquitectónica incomparable.

York está dividida en dos partes claramente diferenciadas, a cada lado del Río Ouse, que atraviesa la ciudad.
En la ribera sur del río, se halla el centro moderno. Aquí trabaja la mayor parte de la población, y se encuentra la mayoría de los hoteles, posadas, cybercafés, restaurantes, etc.
Del otro lado del Ouse, hacia el norte, el centro histórico deslumbra al visitante con sus pequeñas y mágicas callejuelas, que parecen extraídas de un cuento de hadas.
Mariana y yo estuvimos allí en noviembre de 2001, y la cercanía de la Navidad nos permitió disfrutar del centro histórico ataviado para las fiestas, con la noche iluminada por interminables luces de colores, que realzaban la belleza de York.

Otro detalle que hace de York una ciudad distinta de otras en Inglaterra es la muralla. York está encerrada por una construcción medieval, que la protegía de invasiones en tiempos remotos.
Hoy no se teme por invasiones, pero la muralla está allí, como fiel testigo de épocas que ya no volverán y de la vida cotidiana de los apacibles habitantes de una ciudad que camina a su propio ritmo, sin las prisas de las grandes ciudades, mientras el tiempo parece detenerse cuando en una plazoleta, una banda de jazz se apresta a ponerle música a un paseo por la irrealidad de sus siempre brumosos atardeceres.

Daniel, a simple vista, la callecita donde está parada Mariana, se parece a una ciudad de Perú, al Cuzco. Las calles son estrechas y empedradas. Vi la foto y me recordó algo.
Linda la ciudad de York, y en las fotos se ve apacible. ^_^.
Un abrazo.

Hola, no conozco Cuzco personalmente, pero sí la vi en fotos y por TV. Me gustaría mucho ir allí, y no faltará oportunidad.
Sin embargo, salvo por las calles estrechas y empedradas no creo que haya muchos más parecidos.
Los estilos arquitectónicos son muy diferentes en Inglaterra con respecto a las ciudades andinas, al menos las que yo conozco de Ecuador, como Quito, Riobamba o Cuenca.
Ahora que lo pienso, todavía no sé cual es tu nombre. ¿Cómo te llamás?
Un abrazo

Psssi, de hecho, no hay torres ni mucho menos, haha. Pero las casas bajas y calles empedradas, hay. Una ciudad de muuuuchas rocas :)
Mi nombre es Carmen, aunque, si te fijas en los comentarios, la mayoría de mis amigos me dicen: "Carmencha". Es típica esa terminación "cha" en la serranía del Perú, de hecho, mi ciudad está en la sierra y esas terminaciones indican "cariño" :)
Un abrazo.
