Accessible destination

Publication of We are All, the Costa Brava and Girona Pyrenees’ first inclusive tourism blog.

In July, the Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board published Girona Province’s first inclusive tourism blog, We are All, which raises tourism and inclusivity related issues. This trilingual blog is aimed at people with functional diversity and seeks to encourage and to increase the accessible tourism available across the board as regards the variety of experiences and activities offered by the Girona tourism sector.

The blog is divided into different categories —including “Accessible”, “Culture”, “Nature”, “Adventures” and “Testimonials”— to facilitate browsing on the platform and a logical organisation of the contents, and will appear every two weeks. There are currently articles on adapted, accessible greenways, on visits to a destination’s different points of interest that are universally accessible (such as Banyoles lake), on the project to picturise public space in Platja d’Aro, and on the dramatized visit to the Iberian town of Ullastret, adapted for people with reduced mobility and visual disability.

We are All has been created to encourage the inclusive tourism offering and with a view to raising awareness of and providing information on best inclusive practices, applied both by companies and destinations in the Girona tourism sector. Likewise, in June a Facebook page entitled Costa Brava Girona Pyrenees Inclusive Tourism was launched in order to create a community, to maintain contact with followers and to keep them informed about the latest updates to the blog.
