A new application will allow users to discover the past of the beautiful town of Canillas de Aceituno, located in the east of the province of Malaga.

A new web application created by the telecommunications company Telefónica, in collaboration with MyStreetBook and Arkikus, will open a window to the past and allow you to virtually discover the heritage of the municipality of Canillas de Aceituno.

A virtual reconstruction tour will soon allow locals and visitors to the area to observe the buildings and architecture of the 16eCanillas de Aceituno from the last century in an immersive experience using their own smartphone, tablet or computer.

On August 14, Vicente Campos, the mayor, said: “This adventure will place the municipality of Canillas de Aceituno at the forefront of historical reconstruction and virtual reality technologies applied to tourism.

Users will be able to access the innovative tool via a web application exclusive to the project, via the MyStreetBook platform or on the tourist site of the town hall.

This virtual reconstruction is part of a project funded by a tourist grant awarded to Canillas de Aceituno last year for the implementation of information and communication technologies in municipal tourist resources (MUNITIC).
