Description

Ensuring equal rights for disabled people, in order to build a respectful, pluralistic society, is one of the Catalan Tourist Board's goals. Thus, Catalonia has dozens of destinations offering a wide range of adapted tourism resources.

In order for everyone to be able to enjoy the rich Catalan cultural heritage, its unique landscapes and its world-renowned cuisine, most public transport facilities are accessible to people in wheelchairs or with reduced mobility.

The museums and parks are also adapted, and there is a wide variety of accessible sports: in Catalonia, nobody wishing to practice active and nature tourism is excluded for reasons of accessibility. For example, the Catalan section of the Way of St James has been restored with disabled people in mind, and many beaches on the Catalan coast have the equipment necessary for everyone to be able enjoy the sea.

Sensory disabilities have also been taken into account, with an offer of tourism adapted to their needs, mainly in Catalonia's museums, which now offer audio guides in several languages, in addition to tactile models of much of Gaudí's work.
