Who knew there was a League of Historical & Accessible Cities? The city walls of
Avila are fully accessible – amazing! I’d love to see how they achieved that. There is of course a debate to be had about how far you alter a historic building to make it accessible and of course, here in York it is particularly relevant. Other European Accessible cities are Salzburg (Austria), Turin and Lucca (Italy), Mulhouse (France), Sozopol (Bulgaria) and Viborg (Denmark). Each city has its own page on the LHAC website with information, promotional videos etc. Great to know that there are moves out there to make places accessible to everyone!
