Full description
Barcelona is one of the most cosmopolitan capitals in Europe. Visitors from all over the world travel here for culture, design, history, art … and innovation. It is much more than just a conventional interpretation device. With the simple gesture of putting on smart glasses and thanks to virtual reality in 360º you will be able to travel to Barcelona’s most splendid past. See what life was like in Plaça del Rei, the difference between the Plaça de Sant Jaume of the time and now, admiring buildings and areas that are no longer there or eyewitness the construction of the Santa Maria del Mar Church. However, the uniqueness of the experience lies in the fact that you will be surrounded by the atmosphere of 700 years ago. Look around and see the daily routine and situations with characters of the time, who will even interact with you.

Besides the 360º ​​virtual reality reconstructions through 3D infographic recreations, the immersed augmented reality will provide you with additional information about the Cathedral of Barcelona and introduce you to the Roman Barcino. On a 2-hour guided tour, you will travel centuries back to visit a different Barcelona. With the Past View Ancient Barcelona route, experience one of the main environments of the Ciudad Condal, the Gothic Quarter, in a special way by traveling to the past. The starting point will be Rusc de Turisme.

These points will be complemented with additional contents in 360º and with reality. Increased immersion will provide you with more information in a didactic and entertaining way. The stops of the Past View Ancient Barcelona route will be the following departing from Rusc de Turisme: Rusc de Turisme, Via Laietana, Plaza del Rey, Barcelona Cathedral, Plaza de Sant Jaume and Santa María del Mar (El Borne).
