Made up of 10 districts, Barcelona lies on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and shines forever with its architectural heritage. It is a place for creativity and innovation, where local traditions are preserved and pampered but progress is always made. Therefore, the Ciudad Condal works to guarantee universal accessibility.
Basilica of the Sagrada Familia
The works of Antoni Gaudí have become important symbols of the city. We want you to start your tour knowing the genius and beauty of its buildings.
The emblematic Basilica of the Sagrada Familia has more than 135 years of history since its construction began. Due to the size of the project and because the pace depends on contributions and donations, it remains unfinished. It is estimated that its completion could be in 2026.
When completed, the Sagrada Familia will be the tallest building in Barcelona. However, it will not measure more than the Montjuïc mountain. Gaudí stated that “the work of man must never exceed the work of nature.”
So we recommend that you buy your tickets well in advance and take your time to explore the temple. Its official website states the following:
- The Basilica is accessible to people with reduced mobility, except for the towers.
- Priority access for people with disabilities is located on Calle Marina, next to the Sagrada Familia store. You have to present supporting documentation.
- Wheelchairs are available and can be requested by calling 935 132 060 or writing to email@example.com.
The Pedrera-Casa Milá is another of the beautiful works of the greatest exponent of the Catalan modernist movement and is accessible to people with reduced mobility.
The official web portal explains how to get there by public transportation and what the schedules are. It also exposes the subsequent information:
- La Pedrera has priority access, wheelchair loan service, walking sticks with seats attached to visit the exhibitions, elevators, ramps, accessible audio guides and accessible restrooms.
- The roof is uneven, but can be visited via an elevator and a platform that offers a general view.
- The Night Experience is accessible, except for the final show.
- People with a disability equal to or greater than 33% benefit from a reduced rate of € 18.50 (online rate). If you need a companion or the disability is 65% or more, this third person enters for free after presenting accreditation.
- Service animals are admitted.
