How Barcelona is Made Accessible by Made for Spain & Portugal Virginia Irurita, founder and executive partner of Made for Spain & Portugal, a luxury destination management company specializing in custom private journeys in Spain and Portugal, talks with Alan Fine of Insider Travel Report about how a tour of Barcelona is possible for someone with impaired mobility. Irurita’s company has safely put a wheelchair on a hot air balloon, so it was comparatively easy for them to assemble a wheelchair, a chauffeured Mercedes, and an art historian to guide us on a visit to Barcelona’s Gothic quarter, Picasso's museum, Gaudi's apartments and La Sagrada Familia. Irurita also talks about what's new and hot in Spain and Portugal. For more information, visit www.madeforspainandportugal.com.
