The application is a walk through the Roman Barcelona that allows us to feel like a citizen of that time and detailed knowledge of each site with explanations in three languages: Spanish, Catalan and English. And thanks to the geolocation of all your information, the app allows us to make comparisons between the Roman Barcino and our current city.
Thanks to the information in the app we also know from customs of the inhabitants of that time certain Latin words used in that very moment, the app will allow us to translate.
Barcino 3D is the first of a family of applications designed to “meet the needs of different audiences, from the specialist to the curious tourist, through the family audience,” according to the director of heritage ICUB, Josep Lluis Alay.
