Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Accessible tourism nowadays, more than a touristic product or a social cause, is a matter of intelligence given that: it emerges from culture, considering culture as an aggregate of knowledge and values that only intelligence can build and enhance; the number of those who need any special attention in order to enjoy tourism experiences is huge, and even greater if we consider their families and other assistants, as well as the millions of seniors who, though not formally disabled may have, due to old age, acquired a set of diseases and impairments; it does not involve special difficulties nor does it require big and disproportionate investments. In this paper we state and substantiate that Accessible Tourism is a principle of freedom and democratic maturity, but is also a great economic opportunity.
