Q: My husband and I would like to visit Barcelona. He is a person with a disability and is with a heavy power chair. I would like to know if he would be able to get around and sightsee? Are there adapted cars equipped with ramps? Could he get into the stores etc.? Any info you could provide would be helpful.
