Taking an organised city tour can often be a problem for those with reduced mobility. While pavements might be successfully negotiated with a wheelchair, it’s often very hard to know whether buildings (especially old houses or churches) are accessible to all visitors.
Full marks then, to Barcelona Tourism for their approach to the walking tours they offer to the city’s visitors. They’ve set up special routes designed for tourists with limited mobility, avoiding where possible obstacles to wheelchair access, and listing those potential problems clearly on their website and in their brochures. Take a look at their walking tours on this page – there are even photos of the obstacles which are likely to be encountered en route, enabling visitors to assess whether the tour is suitable for them.
Can Be Done offers holidays to Spain, with selected hotels in Barcelona and other major cities.
