Read all about the gorgeous region in southern Spain: Andalusia
Andalusia has it all: best climate in Europe, great beaches, food to die for, stunning historic sites like the Alhambra and La Mezquita, pretty white villages, a fascinating history, beautiful nature, full of Spanish traditions and, last but not least, very friendly people.
How accessible is Andalusia for visitors with a mobility impairment?
Over the last few years they have put a lot of effort in making the region more accessible. Plenty of accessible beaches (with facilities). You can also travel fairly easy by public transport.
Although Andalusia has a large number of ancient cities that may appear inaccessible due to their monuments and abundance of hills, don’t feel discouraged. There are more and more initiatives in Spain that guarantee cultural tourism by providing adapted routes and transport, specialized services, adapted facilities, etc..
What is the Top 3 Accessible Must see/Must do in Andalusia for disabled travelers?
1) Visit the Golden Triangle Granada, Seville and Cordoba. You can visit the Alhambra (partly accessible but definitely worth the visit), the Royal Alcazar and La Mezquita Mosque-Cathedral.
2) Go on an accessible bike trip on one of the Greenways in Andalusia.
3) Try one of the top products from Andalusia: extra virgin olive oil, jamón iberico and sherry while you are visiting or joining one of the famous Andalusian Fiestas and Ferias. By far the best way to get to meet the locals.
Some advice for travelers who are interested in visiting Andalusia
Bare in mind that there can be really hot summers over here, so July and August are not the best months to visit the region, unless you want to spend your holiday in and around the pool or at the beach.
You should also be aware that you need to book tickets well in advance for certain popular sights and monuments (like the Alhambra in Granada). It is best to plan and book as much as you can before you get out here, to prevent disappointments and to ensure that your required services are guaranteed.
