The management, administration, maintenance, conservation, monitoring, investigation, stocktaking, promotion and marketing of the assets and amenities of the Cueva El Soplao tourist complex.
The Cueva El Soplao and all its services are designed to serve the public interest, to make the cultural heritage of Cantabria accessible to the public, to promote tolerance and respect, and to help educate the public on nature.
Our mission is to take responsibility for constructing an important natural and cultural asset, for preserving and making it accessible to the public, for researching the significance of the cave, and for revealing that significance to the public from a diverse and pluralistic pedagogic perspective.
Our commitment to society, nature and the cultural heritage of Cantabria requires us to make universal accessibility one of our main priorities, ensuring that everyone may enjoy the services we offer in a matchless beauty spot.
Since beginning our activity we have been firmly committed to universal accessibility in every possible sphere of our activity. We implemented and certified an accessibility management system under the UNE 170.001-2 standard, thus becoming a pioneer in Cantabria in accessibility management under the standard and the first cave to implement that standard in the whole world.
To achieve this goal we depend on the collaboration of everybody who works at El Soplao, and especially those in direct contact with visitors. Below we list some of the fundamental aspects of this standard affecting everybody performing their activity at El Soplao:
Those basic principles are defined in specific accessibility objectives which are regularly evaluated to verify compliance and establish the necessary measures in case that compliance is undermined.
Awareness of this policy and the participation of everyone in its implementation are essential requirements if our mission is to be fulfilled and our objectives are to be achieved.
