The Logroño.es application allows you to watch videos of historical re-enactments, as well as an exhibition of posters
Technology has also reached the world of historical recreations. Logroño City Council is celebrating the 5th Centenary of the Siege of 1521 with an application (Logroño.es) that allows you to enjoy a historical re-enactment, as well as an exhibition of posters.
The International University of La Rioja, in collaboration with Logroño City Council, has launched two initiatives to celebrate the 5th Centenary of the Siege of 1521.
The first is a dramatised route that represents the victory of the people of Logroño over the French troops in the 16th century. In total, the spectator can enter the Logroño.es application through the “V Centenario” section to enjoy a total of nine historical re-enactments. These re-enactments take place at nine strategic points in the city: Revellín, La Merced convent, Calle Mayor, Santiago church, the back of the church, Plaza de la Oca, Calle Sagasta, Ruavieja with Mercaderes and the Palace gate.
By means of a QR code, the person who is at each of these points will be able to enjoy the appropriate historical recreation of what happened in 1521.
On the other hand, the application also allows you to see the posters announcing the festivities of San Bernabé in the 21st century.
This is yet another example of how technology can overcome the difficulties that COVID-19 has brought with it, so that we can continue to enjoy the same things we had before its arrival, in an enjoyable way and through our mobile devices.
And to learn more about the benefits of the interaction between culture, history and technology, we invite you to watch again this webinar we gave a few weeks ago:
