This tour seems like an escape rooms, so that to advance, in every single scene you should discover all the hidden elements and correctly answer the proposed question; after this next
scene will be unlocked. But take care and check the image carefully before you continue (in any case you will always be able to move freely through the discovered
places by using the map above).


Main objectives:

Develop the insight of urban landscapes.
Typify the components of the city.
Elaborate a tour which allows the interpretation of the city.
Get to know the perception of the urban space of Oviedo through a virtual tour.



The aim of this activity is to discover the different keys that will allow you to progress through the Virtual Tour of Oviedo.
In each of the level, different icons  will appear to bring to you basic information

Each one of these will unlock the next one.

When you have viewed the basic information you will see the question icon

If you get the question right you will receive 5 points and the next level will be unlocked. If the answer is incorrect, one point will be deducted.

In addition, in some  levels you will get extra points with the following icon

These will add an extra point, simply for reading it.

If you answer all the questions you will be able to reach the end of the tour through the different spaces and historical periods in the construction of the city of Oviedo. You will also get a score.
Good Luck!!!
