information

FIESA is a mega sand sculpture exhibit that takes place every year in Algarve, showing, on every edition, forty thousand tons of sand transformed into imposing thematic sculptures. Besides being one one of the biggest sand sculpture exhibits in the world, due to the amount of sand used, it is also a benchmark in the career of the participant artists, gathering every year renowned artists and the new talents of this art.
There is an entrance fee, but the handicapped and disabled people are exempt.
 

Parking

Next to the access to the thematic park there is a parking lot reserved for handicapped or disabled users. It is not indicated, but it is the only one levelled with the remaining parking lot. If you have any doubt concerning the location, you may ask the security clerk who will help you. In case the place is taken you can use the remaining parking places right next. They are both located on the other side of the access road. Once it is a very busy road all attention is recommended on crossing.

Pavement

Next to the handicapped and disabled people parking lot, aswell as on the remaining parking lot the pavement is made of dirt. On the road to the access you have to cross a tarmac road. In the precint, on the sand sculptures' area, the pavement is made of hard sand, occasionally loose, which may create some difficulties on the autonomous displacement in wheelchair.
If you are accompanied by someone who might help you in these cases, there should be no problem doing the course. On the commercial area and restaurant facilities, aswell as on the ticket office, the pavement is made of loose gravel which makes very hard the autonomous locomotion in wheelchair. Once more, if there is the possibility of being helped, there will be no problem moving around. On the accesses to the restaurant and toilets there are wooden ramps.
 

Wc

In the thematic park you can find toilets prepared for handicapped or disabled people. Even though they are removable facilities, they are provided with supports and have the required dimensions to be used by people on wheelchair. 

Restaurant

Inside the park there is a bar with several esplanade tables. Here you may eat and drink during your visit. The access to the bar is made by a wooden ramp.
