The city of Girona works every day to be an inclusive city from which everyone, citizens and visitors, regardless of their conditions, can enjoy.
So much, that the website of the Tourist Office of Girona offers a Tourism Guide for all
, which is constantly updated. It offers a list of monuments with their level of accessibility, as well as a selection of accommodations and adapted hotels
with information about the rooms, bathrooms and accessible services that they have.
La Força Vella
In the S. 1 BC, the Romans erected a mighty fortress that traced an almost triangular perimeter; A kind of acropolis. It was the first enclosure of the city, unaltered until the year 1000 and still noticeable today in some walls. On page 11 of the guide indicates the conditions of transit for persons with reduced mobility.
Built between the XI and XVIII centuries, it is made up of a set of walls and spaces of different styles, from the Romanesque (cloister and tower of Charlemagne) to the Baroque facade and staircase. Its most singular element is the large nave (VV-XVI century), which is the widest vaulted Gothic space in the world (23 meters). More information here (page 12) the site accessibility policy.
Plaza del Vi and the rambla de la Libertad
Both are very crowded spaces with buildings characterized by arcades, low ceilings and uneven arches. In the case of the rambla, it has been almost always the main mall and leisure center of Girona. In addition, several interesting buildings are concentrated, such as Casa Norat (1912), with a notable modernist façade. The Vi square, on the other hand, delimits with the Town Hall and the Municipal Theater. Both areas have good accessibility for people with reduced mobility.
A stone-built city, it offers spectacular images of arcaded squares and steep alleyways, which, however, offers good outside accessibility for people in wheelchairs. Of special note are the houses of the Onyar (the river that crosses the city), painted with vivid colors. Together with the Cathedral and Sant Feliu, are the most emblematic image of Girona.
It shows the valuable Tomàs Mallol collection of "pre cinema", which ranges from the first moving images of shadow theater to the current cinema. On page 21 of the guide provides more information on access possibilities for people with reduced mobility.
