For more than a month now, explanatory posters of the pieces and spaces that tourists visit have been installed throughout the monumental site. These cartridges contain QR codes through which you can access, through the mobile, a wider information about the space or object visited. We hope that this initiative helps to understand and know more about our College of Nª Sª de la Antigua. As an example, we put here an image of one of the cartels that have been installed, in this case the one corresponding to the number 1 pad that takes us to the information of the School in general.
Seal the Compostela.
The Colegio Nª Sª de la Antigua Foundation will make available to the Secretariat of the Center and the Reception a stamp so that the pilgrims can seal their compostela, since the influx of them by the “Winter Road” is growing lately . This stamp will carry the memory of our Foundation to many places and will be a testimony of the passage of the pilgrims through our College.
We have incorporated in our page “Visit us” a button through which you can make a virtual tour of the monumental zone of the School. We can choose the area to visit or follow the proposed virtual tour. With a simple movement of the mouse we will obtain a 360º view. You can access “Visit us” in the main menu of our page.
