Can you identify in the photographs where the physical or architectural barriers are in the new streets of Estartit?
The safety of pedestrians needs to be increased everywhere. Clear physical division of the pedestrian and vehicle tracks is necessary.
Structures and barriers between pedestrians and vehicles are needed.
For the SECURITY of all.
Our struggle is in this sense. We have denounced the illegal occupation of pedestrian sidewalks in the town of L'Estartit.
Do not be fooled by the rulers or their publications and even those that promote tourism for all.
Neither the beach is prepared as it should be. For dogs yes. They are appreciated more like people.
Look at the following photographs of other places prepared and see in the Estartit and you will not find it (rectification: in front of the Pineda d'en Robert they have made a passageway for people with disabilities).
In l'Estartit fundamental human rights are not respected.
Accessible Tourism or Tourism for All is not limited to the elimination of physical, sensory or communication barriers, but is intended to ensure that tourism environments, products and services can be enjoyed on equal terms by anyone with or without disability.
Accessible Tourism only exists when accessibility has been incorporated into the entire tourism value chain. It is not only about having an accessible hotel or an accessible tourist attraction, but also taking into account the experience of the trip as a whole: planning, tourist information, public or private transport, accommodation, tourist activities and leisure, restaurants, etc.
Accessibility has become a factor intrinsic to the quality of tourism, quality tourism can no longer be conceived, when tourism is not accessible to all, quality tourism must be accessible to everyone and no one should be left out of this for any reason or circumstance.
Accessibility can be understood in relation to three basic forms of human activity: mobility, communication and understanding; the three subject to limitation as a consequence of the existence of barriers.
Universal Accessibility is an essential quality that tourism environments, products and services must have, so that they can be used autonomously, safely and standardized by any person, regardless of the limited capacity. It is understood that universal accessibility includes the idea of conceiving without barriers everything that is created or designed new (in this sense is similar to the idea of Design for All); but also incorporates the progressive adaptation of what has already been done with barriers.
Inclusion and non-discrimination of persons with disabilities and other diverse needs is an obligation enshrined in Spanish law. Tourism should also be considered, since this group of people has the right to leisure and to enjoy their vacation time in the same conditions as other people, as specified in Article 30 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. rights of persons with disabilities ", signed in New York on 13 December 2006 by the United Nations, ratified by Spain in 2007 and in force since 3 May 2008.
The lack of access and the barriers present in the environment condition social participation and, consequently, the exercise of fundamental freedoms (right to education, right to employment, social and health services, right to culture, integrity personnel etc.) to a greater extent than the functional limitations themselves. The lack of accessibility in tourism resources is an indirect, but subtle, form of discrimination. Therefore, introducing the concept of accessible tourism in destinations ensures equal opportunities for all people.
When talking about tourists with disabilities and other special needs, despite the many stereotypes that exist, all people are referred to as transient (pregnancy, plaster in a limb) or permanent (aging, physical or sensory disability, etc.) are in a situation that needs special attention appropriate to their needs. This shows that any of us can be part of this group.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 15% of the world's population (1 billion people) live with some form of disability.  UNWTO is convinced that accessibility to all facilities, products and tourist services should be an essential component of any responsible and sustainable tourism policy. In this spirit of mainstreaming the issue of disability, the General Assembly of the Organization has adopted a number of resolutions, declarations and recommendations on accessibility.
Tourism stakeholders need to provide accurate, relevant and timely information to their customers, before, during and even after travel. Ensuring that information is accessible is undoubtedly one of the keys so that communication with tourists at all stages of the journey can be successfully established, particularly with regard to people with disabilities and special needs.
