Today has been declared the Día Nacional de la Persona con Discapacidad by the Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud. The ministry has its own Comisión de Accesibilidad that makes sure there is access for persons with disabilities.
The ministry itself, the Centro Nacional de la Cultura downtown, the former liquor factory, has plenty of ramps and even signs in braille. However, the ministry also has charge of many other structures, including 56 buildings in the national library system.
The recent addition, the museum for the famous stone spheres at Finca 8 in Osa, was constructed with the disabled in mind, noted the ministry. The same is true of the paths associated with the museum, it said.
