Adaptive sport

A leading destination for accessible tourism

Catalonia is a leading destination for accessible tourism in the state of Spain, with more than 1,100 tourist sites that have facilities for people with disabilities, reduced mobility and special needs. To foster equality, inclusion and accessibility in sport, many towns and cities with athletic facilities have worked in recent years to eliminate architectural and communication barriers to make it easier for people with some disability to practice their favourite sport.
