Resumen

This article is part of the International Cooperation Project "Training in universal accessibility for the strategic management of population aging in the province of Villa Clara (Cuba)", funded by the Ministry of Development, Infrastructure and Spatial Planning of the Junta de Andalucía (2018/2020). A city friendly to older people is one that encourages active population aging through opportunities for health, participation and safety. The objective of this study is to value the importance of promoting cities that are friendly towards the most vulnerable groups, focusing on the elderly, being one of the population groups that are referenced specifically in the World Charter on the Right to the City as priority objects of attention. To do this, a systematic review of the existing literature on the subject has been carried out, making a comparison between Cuba and Spain. As results we can point out that, although there are important advances in both countries, there is still a long way to go. It is necessary to continue developing inclusion strategies to avoid the integration and access difficulties of citizens in general and the most vulnerable groups in particular.
