The innovative tool to get to know Santa Fe better

The tourism area of Santa Fe implemented an innovative tool to know the attractions in the provincial capital.

The Municipality of Santa Fe put  at the disposal of tourists and, also, neighbors  an innovative tool. It is an audio guide system to learn more about the different spaces and  buildings  of the capital city that have a historical and heritage value, as well as its traditional walks. They can be listened to online or downloaded from any mobile device, free of charge, from the municipality's website.

An audio guide is  a pre-recorded story that is offered to people to complete a tour individually.  In this way, the electronic system allows you to travel anywhere following the guide that indicates information and details about the history of what you see, be it a street, a property or an object.

This innovative tool was developed in the studio of the Mediatheque, a space of audiovisual creation with which Santa Fe has.  There are already five places with these audio guides, each with several tracks . The idea is to continue adding spaces and buildings.

An audio guide stands out for breaking physical and temporary barriers for anyone. At any time of the day, one can  enjoy the city of Santa Fe. 

As a fundamental feature for the current world moment, this tool becomes a device that allows the city's neighbors to tour it individually. When you go out for a recreational walk, you can use them through mobile devices.

The development was made with the premise that the capital city will be a leading tourist destination at the national level. It is a  very useful device for the private sector linked to tourism, for hotels and travel agencies. 

 Walks and slopes 

The Municipality incorporated audio guides to the five tours offered in the framework of the program My City as a Tourist. On the Paseo  Casco Histórico , you are invited to learn about the history of Santa Fe in a four-block radius, in which are condensed the origins of the city of Santa Fe in its current location, after a transfer that led to thea decade, in 1660, just under a century after it was founded by Juan de Gary in 1973. The tracks of the audio guide, in 33 minutes, propose  a sound tour about the transformation experienced by the Plaza 25 de Mayo , the story about the construction of the Cabildo and its replacement by the House of Government, as well as providing information about the detron the scene of the National Constitution. It also offers details of the Palace of Justice, the Metropolitan Cathedral Church, the Parish of All Saints, Merengo, the Shrine of Our Lady of Miracles and the College of the Immaculate Conception.

The Paseo Museums and Historic Places includes different tracks that have a total duration of 30 minutes and provide details about the Provincial Historical Museum, the Ethnographic and Colonial Museum “Juan de Garay”, the Convent and Church Museum of San Francisco; the Convent of Santo Domingo, the Legislature of the province of Santa Fe and the Museum of Art “Rosa Galisteo de Rodríguez”.  These spaces are guardians of part of our heritage : in the audio guide you can learn about architectural details of many buildings, and the traces and elements that keep our museums.
