Accesible City

Turismo Accesible en Valladolid

Valladolid is a city that is committed to accessibility. The city is moving towards a future that doesn't leave anyone on the sidelines of its cultural events and tourist attractions. We accompany you on a journey through the most accessible Valladolid.

Accessible Tourism

The tourist offices in Valladolid are adapted for people with reduced mobility.

Whatever your type of disability, come and consult with us to discover the best options for designing your tourist itinerary in Valladolid. You can find us at the Glass Pavilion on Acera de Recoletos Street and at the San Benito Monastery. You can also contact us through the email address informacion@valladolidturismo.com, and we will be at your service to advise and plan your trip to Valladolid.

You can also book your ride on the tourist bus, fully adapted for people with reduced mobility and equipped with individual audio guides.

Furthermore, individuals with a recognized disability can enjoy all the theatrical routes and guided tours offered by the Valladolid Tourism Office at a reduced rate.

Accesible Culture

The museums and theaters in Valladolid open the doors of culture to all audiences, taking into consideration the needs of people with disabilities in their facilities, programs, and activities.

An example of this inclusive policy is the Science Museum of Valladolid. The center is fully prepared to welcome people with reduced mobility or visual disabilities: it is free of architectural barriers, equipped with ramps, adapted restrooms, and elevators, and offers a wheelchair lending service as well as Braille brochures and informational material.

The museum offers activities aimed at all types of audiences under the umbrella of its program 'Science with Difference.' Thus, individuals with hearing and visual impairments can participate in special Planetarium programs (with subtitles, audio description, and all the advantages of the magnetic loop system), explore the solar system through tactile models, or request sign language interpreters for the deaf and deaf-blind. For individuals with physical or intellectual disabilities, the museum provides a comprehensive program of adapted visits, workshops, and tours.

The National Museum of Sculpture is also a reference in terms of inclusion, providing facilities for those with mobility difficulties (suitable restrooms, adapted tours, wheelchair lending) and catering to individuals with sensory disabilities (portable magnetic loop for audio guides, Braille signage, and magnifiers for reading).

Other museums accessible to people with reduced mobility include the Contemporary Art Museum Patio Herreriano, the Municipal Exhibition Halls of La Pasión, Las Francesas, and Casa Revilla, as well as the Columbus House-Museum.

The theaters Calderón and Laboratorio de las Artes de Valladolid (LAVA) also embrace accessible culture. Both have incorporated the magnetic loop system and are accessible to people with reduced mobility. Additionally, the Calderón, included in the Teatro Accesible project since 2017, offers several shows each season with subtitles and audio description.

A significant part of Valladolid's cultural program takes place on the streets: therefore, major events such as the concerts during the Virgen de San Lorenzo Festival or the Christmas parade are designed with reserved spaces for people with disabilities to enjoy them.



Adapted Mobility

This commitment to accessibility also extends to urban transportation. The bus network of AUVASA is tailored to the needs of people with reduced mobility: their fleet includes vehicles with ramps to overcome level differences at entry and exit, a side tilt system, and an access width of over 90 centimeters; non-slip flooring, handrails, reserved seats, and spaces designated for wheelchair users.

The buses in Valladolid also feature visual and auditory information systems that announce the upcoming stops to passengers, as well as providing information about the bus line and its destination.

You can find more information on the AUVASA website and their mobile application, both certified as 100% accessible channels.

The City Council supports the adaptation of taxis for people with reduced mobility through a subsidy program, which has led to an increasing number of adapted vehicles in the city.

To overcome the level differences in certain streets, the City Council has started installing elevators that will allow residents and visitors to move between areas that were previously connected only by stairs. The first elevators are those that connect the streets Ánade, Estornino, and Oriol with Paseo Juan Carlos I. In a second phase, an elevator and escalators have been inaugurated that overcome the north slope of Parquesol, between the streets Julio Senador Gómez and Juan de Valladolid.

Another project that the city will soon implement is a service for borrowing bicycles adapted for people with reduced mobility, which can be requested at a designated area in front of the tourist office on Acera de Recoletos street.
