Reception to the Mayor of the French city of Lourdes

The Mayor of Bilbao, Juan Mari Aburto, has received the Mayor of Lourdes, Bourdeu Josette, this morning at City Hall. She leads a local delegation of 25 people, interested in learning about the actions carried out in different neighbourhoods of the city on accessibility, pedestrian and urban improvement.

The French city of Lourdes wants to find out about the best practices implemented by Bilbao City Council to improve accessibility and overcome architectural barriers resulting from the difficult topography of some areas of the Villa, with special attention to the ample supply of ramps, elevators and escalators, owned by the Council, with the aim of analyzing the possibility of implementing similar infrastructures in the village of the Hautes Pyrenees, whose main activity is religious tourism.
