We are offering two different options of accessible tours for people who, although having mobility issues, still want to get the most of their visit to the area. Designed to enjoy the rich heritage of the two main cities in the Region without covering a long distance, these tours are completely step-free, over flat ground and getting access to sights suitable for wheelchairs or other devices.
CARTAGENA ACCESSIBLE WALKING TOUR
Starting by the pier and the port area, the itinerary follows the wall erected by the 18th century to prevent the attacks coming from the sea into the city, then getting to the Roman Theatre Museum and remains for a complete tour of these facilities. After this visit, tour will be resumed by strolling through the main street to behold the luxurious town-houses built by the local mining tycoons during the late 19th century, even entering the main highlight from this period, the eclectical and gorgeous-looking Town Hall building. Last sight will be the imposing former prison that houses the Naval Museum, where is kept the symbol of the maritime power of the city, Peral’s submarine, the first of its kind working with electricity and assembled by 1885.
MURCIA ACCESSIBLE WALKING TOUR
Tour gets started just beside the river and facing the neoclassical Town Council. After getting an introduction about the city we will be heading for the Cathedral’s square in order to behold the fascinating baroque ensemble whose highlights are its façade and the nearby Bishop’s palace. The Cathedral, a monument that took 400 years in the making, will be fully explained, before getting into the main street in order to head for the casino building, a gorgeous-looking building from the late 19th century originally conceived like an exclusive membership club for the local elite. Tour will be resumed with a stroll along the other two main squares in the city center, those of Santo Domingo and Romea, before being finished by the local meeting point for beer, the lovely Plaza de las Flores.
