COOLTUR was created in 2017 with the intention of offering and expanding the cultural tourism offer in Catalonia. We are passionate about culture, which is why we decided to create a wide range of tourist tours based on history and local heritage. With this idea, we want to bring you closer to collective history (our own and yours) and to know unknown places. Great lovers of our environment, from COOLTUR we also want to promote responsible tourism and respectful of space and historical elements to preserve them.
Jordi Plans Canal
Jordi is one of the ideologues of COOLTUR’s company, and since he was a child, he has been a great lover of the stories his grandparents told him, and of popular culture, where he has participated in different associations. After finishing his studies, he was fortunate enough to be able to work as an archaeologist at different sites in Catalonia. With the economic crisis he went to England where he also worked as an archaeologist, until he decided to return to start COOLTUR’s company. Together with Ricard Jiménez, he is responsible for the content of the different tourist tours.
Ricard Jiménez Herrera
Ricard has always been a voracious reader of all the books that fell into his hands. History subjects were always his favourite subjects in school and everywhere he went he was interested in the remains of the past. While studying at the Faculty of History, he worked as a guide and educator at the Egyptian Museum in Barcelona and then he entered the world of archaeology, where he worked for ten years. With the economic and sector crisis, and when the company where he was working closed down, he decided to undertake the COOLTUR project together with Jordi Plans, with whom he had agreed on several excavations.
