Tips disabled access

Tips disabled access
Some tips abouts disabled access kindly submitted by Alies de Bruijn. "We have something to share about disabled people in Barcelona. My daughter has a wheel chair and we went to the Parc Guell. The best way to get into the parc is at the north side entrance on Carretera de Carmel where the public transport buses and cars can park. It is hard work with a wheelchair to get up through the streets up the hill, so we took a taxi to the entrance from street Carmel. Then we could easily walk into park to the marketplace which has the coloured bench by Gaudi. In the Guell park we visited the house where Gaudi lived, it`s the Gaudi house museum now and nearby you will find a path down, so that you can see the columns under the marketplace. My daughter is able to walk a short distance and take stairs down so we were able to walk all down untill the shop and we could carry the wheelchair down the stairs, but otherwise you can not go down the stairs. In the city we also went to the Casa Mila on Passeig de Gracia. With the wheelchair you can go in and see everything. You can also go by elevator to the roof but if you cannot walk a little bit you cannot see all of the roof. My daughter could walk a little bit and could see more of the roof. The roof has many steps which is a problem for disabled peope. But we didn't have to pay for Casa Mila and at Sagrada Familia church she didn't have to pay either. She could see eveything at the Sagrada Famila, except going by elevator to the top of the towers because you cannot come back with the elevator. The elevator is just a one-way direction ald people must walk down using the stairs. The turistic hop-on-hop-off bus was fine for disabled people 
I hope you can help other people with this information
