ADAPTED TARRAGONA

Tarragona is a city and municipality of Spain, capital of the province of Tarragona and the region of Tarragona. During the Roman Empire it was one of the main cities of Hispania.

In recent years, it has become one of the most accessible regions, recommended for adapted vacations. The province has more and more hotels and accommodations for people with reduced mobility, with accessible toilets.

Some recommended places for accessible tourism are:

Amphitheater of Tarragona

Built in the 2nd century AD., the amphitheater was the scene of popular shows, like the fights between gladiators. In the central part of the amphitheater are conserved the remains of the gothic basilica (Sixth century) and the remains of a romantic-gothic church from 12th century.

Cathedral

The cathedral was inaugurated in 1230. It had magnificent monastic buildings, of which the cloister is preserved as well as a richly sculpted door of the Chapter Hall.

In this link can be found more details about the accessibility of cathedral.

Roman Circus

The importance of this construction lies not only in its architectural aspects, but also in its location within the city: it’s built inside the walls, next to the forum, a very rare place due to the size of the circuses.

The entrance and the space is quite accessible, although it does not have adapted toilet.

Vault of Pallol

The vault of Pallol was part of the administrative constructions of the provincial forum of Tarraco. The access door and the facade rosette corresponds to the medieval period before XV century, as it seems that this vault was used as a church.

The entrance and the space is quite accessible, although it does not have adapted toilet.

Roman walls

The first great construction that the Romans did shortly after settling in the place was the wall. That primeval military settlement was the origin of the now known city of Tarraco. From 125 BCE, the wall transformed enough and became in the defining element of urban space.

Although the visit presents some difficulties of accesibility, the enclosure has adapted a toilet for a person in wheelchair.

Modern Art Museum

It was created by the deputation of Tarragona in 1976, to promote the study and knowledge of the contemporary modern art and, at the same time, to preserve, display and share its artistic heritage with the community.

Castells

An essential visit to Tarragona includes seeing the 'castells' (castles). A castell is a human tower built traditionally in festivals at many locations within Catalonia. At these festivals, several colles castelleres (groups who construct towers) often succeed in building and dismantling a tower's structure. They are a deeply rooted tradition within the region, and have been declared as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Visiting the Mediterranean

There is too the possibility of visiting the Mediterranean, characterized by marine villas, tasty fish and seafood.
