A mobile app takes you on a virtual tour to the Road to Santiago

2016-09-17

The Road to Santiago is not only a physical activity, it is a spiritual journey that also allows you to enjoy architecture, art, cuisine and customs. And all of this can be witnessed on Camino 360.  It is an interactive mobile application that lets you experience the French route of the pilgrimage that ends in the Spanish city of Compostela.

The application allows the viewer to immerse themselves in a 360 view of some of the main landmarks. A Spanish pilgrim, Antonio, and an American named Margaret guide users through the interactive journey to the route. 

"Go forward my brave ones, wide is the region of Castilla.”

Together, they flock to the festivals like the one in San Fermin in Pamplona and visit unique buildings such as the Episcopal Palace of Astorga, designed by Antonio Gaudi, or the jewel of the Romanesque style, the church of San Martín de Tours in Frómista.

"It represents the summit of Spanish Romanesque art of the 11th century.”

The creators of the app say they were inspired by the pilgrims passing through their village. They wanted to create something that stimulates the desire to explore the beautiful landscape of northern Spain. The final destination on the route is none other than the tomb of St. James in Galicia.

The application has been made by the company named Iralta and was recently awarded the best tourist application of Spain. It is available in English and Spanish for Android and Apple products.
