The present study intends to demonstrate the importance of walking for a person, as well as its relations to the city. It is made a conceptual approacg of both physical and social infrastructure for Walkability: the streets, the sidewalks and the limitations that the urban space imposes to the pedestrian. This study pervades, therefore, issues and elements that are fundamental for the comprehension of the essential processes of Walkability. It will also be demonstrated how urbanistic past choices have culminated in the abandonment of historical centralities, which, if added up to the increase of the urban area influenced by the transport matrix, have made people more attached to the private automobile, limiting cities’ capacity to offer environments which promote walking mobility. Walkability, therefore, is a tool which allows the study of the reasons why people walk or stop walking in the cities, as well as the impact of that in people’s life quality. This is the central theme of the present study.
