Accessible Lisbon. Museu Arqueológico do Carmo.

A fuller report will come later, but I really must highlight this attraction now.

The age of a building is often used as an excuse (and let’s face it, an excuse is what it is), for not making it accessible to all.

And buildings don’t come much older than a ruined monastery.


But there are people, good people, who are so proud of their attraction, that they want everyone to be able to visit it.

And in Lisbon, this attraction is the Museu Arqueológico do Carmo.

The staff at the Museu Arqueológico do Carmo are justifiably proud of their made-to-measure wheelchair lift, which took 3 months, and a not inconsiderable financial investment, to design and install.

They are to be congratulated for their efforts to make their museum accessible to all.

Leaders & innovators.

So where there’s a will….


Lisbon Hotels:

The two best sources of information for hotels in Lisbon are Trivago and (just in case the hotel doesn’t appear on Trivago!)
