The first stretch, crossing the city of Girona, has been equipped with horizontal guides along the route, braille signs, and an accessible mobile application with lots of information in different languages

The Girona Greenways Consortium, a body belonging to the Regional Council of Girona, has completed adaptation work on the first stretch of the greenways for the visually impaired.   This can be found on the route between the city of Girona, heading out from the Plaça dels Països Catalans, and the Technological Park. A horizontal guide which can be followed with a walking cane has been installed along this stretch, as well as vertical signposts with information available in braille. An accessible mobile app has also been designed, providing full information about the route, the history of the greenways, and the natural and cultural heritage of the area. The project has been co-financed by the Strategic Tourism Plan of the Government of Catalonia, with a total cost of 185,000 euros for all the work carried out to make the route visually accessible.
