When we think of going holidaysthere are always destinations that are better known than others, destinations that are better to visit in summer, others in winter… the place to travel to depends on many factors.

But something we don’t think about is how it affects the sightseeing to these places. There are many destinations that are affected by excessive traffic and others that live only from the trade they generate during the seasons.

The truth is that it is not necessary to choose the best time of year to visit a place, it is often preferable to go when there are fewer people to be able to enjoy the city calmly.

With the problem of climate change, there are also many localities that are carrying out practices to contribute to the environment and to be able to maintain the nature of the planet in good condition. This year, the New York Times has published a list with ’52 places that will change the world’, full of areas that stand out for their heritage conservation and care initiatives, and among them there are two that belong to Spain.

Today at idealista we see what they are and, in case you are looking for a second home for your vacation, we also show you some properties nearby:

The first destination is in Canary Islands and is recognized by the newspaper as “the most charming of the archipelago”. Near the coast of Morocco, this small island is the leader in its fight to achieve 100% renewable energy.

One of the key points for this project is the Corona de Viento, a power plant that uses a system of reservoirs and wind to supply electricity to the island. Currently, the plant can supply 11,000 people 100% with renewable energy for 25 consecutive days.

But another strong point in the struggle of its neighbors to maintain the spirit of the place, who seek to preserve the historical language of iron, the herreno whistle. It is one of the last whistled languages ​​in the world and on the island they give free classes to the shepherds and in the markets on weekends to prevent it from becoming extinct.
