Barcelona without barriers
Barcelona has made an enormous effort to eliminate architectural barriers and become an accessible city for anyone with functional diversity. This means that the city not only provides everyone with a better quality of life, including those people without reduced mobility, it also makes the city a more attractive place for visitors with reduced mobility or communication, and their families. For this reason, the city's municipal establishments and many other private ones have not only incorporated physically accessible access points, but they have also broken down auditory and visual communication barriers.
Getaways and trips
People's functional self-sufficiency is not just about wheelchairs and permanent auditory and visual disabilities. There are also many people whose everyday self-sufficiency has been reduced, perhaps because they have small children and prams, or because they are elderly or they have temporary physical injuries. Making the city's infrastructures accessible to all of these groups of people is a challenge that has become one of Barcelona's priorities.
Most of the city's tourist establishments, from museums and cultural centres to accommodation and restaurants, have adapted their facilities to accommodate society's functional diversity. On the internet, there are many resources which help you get first-hand information about all the services available to people with functional diversity and their families.
