Now sightseeing in the capital is more accessible than ever, thanks to the 'programme of accessible guided visits' proposed by the Madrid City Council. From Thursday to Sunday, during the months of November and December, people with disabilities and the person accompanying them who so wish can take part in one of the four free itineraries proposed, which will take them to the most interesting places in the historic centre of the city. Let's get started!
Below we describe the four thematic routes included in the 'programme of accessible guided visits', which will be carried out in groups of 20 people, accompanied by a professional guide.
On Thursdays at 4pm, will begin this route, allowing us to get to know the city through the legacy left by the Austrian and the Bourbon dynasties. Monuments, buildings, streets and shops full of history will surprise you and give you a different view of the capital. The Plaza de Oriente, the Church of San Ginés de Arlés, or the Monastery of the Descalzas Reales are some of the points of this singular itinerary.
For its part, on Fridays also at 4pm, we will have the opportunity to participate in a pleasant walk, in which you will know some of the most important buildings of the city as the Plaza de Cibeles presided by his Goddess, the Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, the Puerta del Sol or the Bank of Spain, among others, which gave a change to the appearance of the Villa.
