In Andalucia, wheelchair accessibility is improving

Most Spanish tourist offices abroad, including that in London, carry information sheets, which while pretty basic, include some useful addresses for disabled travellers, together with details of accessible accommodation throughout the country.


More specifically, in Andalucia, wheelchair accessibility is improving and all new public buildings are now required to have wheelchair access. However, it remains comparatively rare in cheaper accommodation, although several of the province's youth hostels, including Cordoba and Cazorla, have rooms adapted to the disabled.

Senior Travelers

Many museums, art galleries, and historic buildings, in general, have reduced prices for people over 60, and some of the luxurious paradores also offer discounts for senior citizens, however obviously some sort of proof of age, such as a passport, is necessary.
