Accessibility

Parking

Its using has the downside of, if you are driving, having a cable suspended on the access, which is there to avoid its unauthorised use.

In the restaurant area there is a plastic pavement. There are no physical barriers on all of these areas. Yet, help from others is recommended, in case you displace yourself on a manual wheelchair, due to the excessive slope in some places.

These facilities are provided with helping bars for transfering from the wheelchair onto the toilet.
