The meeting, which took place in Jaca, seeks to unite efforts to make the pilgrimage route to Santiago accessible space for people with disabilities, raising awareness of the deep cultural, artistic and historical heritage of the Camino.

Jacob@cces, funded by the European Union, is a year of work behind and includes the construction of four centers of interpretation, two healthcare and restaurant especially conceived for people with disabilities. The cities of Jaca and Pamplona each will house an interpretive center and the town of Martillue, a shelter for disabled people, while Ostabat, in France, will host another interpretation center, a hostel and restaurant mentioned.

Cmo siempre he dicho, esta bien que rutas como la francesa se adapten para los discapacitados. Otras es mejor no tocarlas. Pero el Camino francés, como ruta turística, está bien que se adapte
