For this week's Accomable blog, we thought we'd have a chat with our friends at Accessible Madrid to come up with a list of 5 landmark attractions for disabled visitors to visit.
We also have some fantastic apartments and hotels on Accomable so don't forget to check them out either!
1. The Royal Palace of Madrid
The Royal Palace of Madrid is one of the city's landmark sites to visit. With its origins in the 9th century kingdom of Toledo, the palace is a great place to learn about the history of this awesome city. It's also fully wheelchair accessible and scooters are welcome too.
2. Plaza Mayor
The Plaza Mayor is Madrid's main square. It is located right in the centre of the city, just a few minutes walk from the Puerta del Sol. A marvellous place to sit out, try some good Spanish wine, sample some tasty tapas and watch the passers-by.
3. The Temple of Debod
An ancient Egyptian temple saved from destruction during the development of the Aswan damn and relocated to Madrid!
4. Puerta de Alcalá
One of Madrid's symbols and it is one of the most well-known monuments.
5. Gran Via
The Gran Vía, together with the Paseo de la Castellano, is Madrid's most famous street, mentioned in zarzuelas (Spanish operettas) and books and shown many times in films
Hmmm.... Where should I stay when I go to Madrid?
Hmmm.... is Madrid accessible?
While not all parts might be totally suitable, the city is improving rapidly. Several of the city's metro and bus lines are accessible and a number of taxi firms provide adapted taxis. If you want more info, contact Accessible Madrid.
