For today’s post you will know everything that people with reduced mobility in Málaga can enjoy, from visits to museums, make a tour in our beautiful city, go to the beach or use the public transport without any difficulty.
The reduced mobility in Málaga has undergone a great improvement in recent years, thanks to a wide and complex reform of public areas in order to create accessible spaces for all citizens. In this sense, in 2010, the city of Málaga received in Madrid the 2010 Cermi prize, awarded by the Spanish Committee of Representatives of People with Disabilities (Cermi), to the best local or regional action for its initiative ‘Málaga accessible city ‘, which aims to extend universal accessibility and design for “all areas of relationship and civic coexistence, constituting a reference for action for local accessibility and inclusion policies”.
Tour for people with reduced mobility in Málaga
In Málaga, people with reduced mobility don’t have to worry, since it is possible to enjoy a magnificent route fully adapted through the historic center of the city.
The starting point of this fantastic free accessible tour in Málaga begins at the Contemporary Art Center of Málaga (CAC), a space dedicated to the reflection and dissemination of contemporary art. The next destination is the Atarazanas Market, the work of the architect Joaquín de Rucoba and the site where a naval workshop of Nazari origin was located, of which only a marble door is preserved and where its name comes from; atarazana. From one enclave to another, ‘Marqués de Larios’ street is the main commercial street of Málaga that gives access to the next point of interest the ‘Plaza de la Constitución’, which was the old main square of the city, which has been for more than 500 years the public and political space of the city.
After a short break, we have an obligatory appointment in our tour for people with reduced mobility in Málaga with the Cathedral of Málaga, “La Manquita”, named as this because one of its towers is unfinished. The Cathedral is located in front of the ‘Plaza del Obispo’, and is considered one of the most valuable Renaissance constructions in Andalusia.
After this visit, is time to find the most visited museum in the city, the Málaga Picasso Museum, center that has many paintings of Picasso, who was born in Málaga. Just in front of the Pimpi, we find the spectacular Roman Theater located at the foot of the Alcazaba. To end this tour for people with reduced mobility in Málaga, we arrive at the ‘Plaza de la Merced’. In the center of the square we can find the Obelisk in homage to General Torrijos and the birthplace of Picasso, an ideal location to finish this magnificent tour.
Public transport in Málaga
A clear example of the great evolution in Málaga is that produced in public transport, where companies such as the EMT or Metro Málaga have managed to make people with reduced mobility in Málaga able to use public transport without any problem. This has been possible with the installation of ramps in the case of buses and lifts in the case of the subway. The Taxi has been renewed at the same time as the city, since there are currently 8-seater vehicles that have been adapted for people with reduced mobility and they incorporate ramps for easy access to the vehicle.
