The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the Fundación ONCE have launched the first edition of the “Accessible Tourism Destination” (ATD), which recognized and promoted sites that are accessible to all. The aim is to publicize locations “that make an important effort so that their destination can be enjoyed by any tourist, regardless of their physical, sensory or cognitive abilities”, as indicated by the terms and conditions of the initiative.

Congratulations to the winners of this first edition of “Accessible Tourism Destination 2019” awarded during the International Tourism Fair in IFEMA (Madrid). In this first call, Portugal was selected as the best Accessible Tourist Destinations, while Barcelona and the Indian city of Thrissur received special mentions.
