The "Digital Journey to Spinalonga" project aims to comprehensively promote the island of Spinalonga through digital means. This initiative involves the integration of various actions to digitally showcase the island's historical significance, including its archaeological monuments dating from prehistoric times to 1830, as well as its religious monuments from 1830 onwards. Additionally, the project will highlight the prominent figures, environment, and economic activities that have shaped Spinalonga's rich history, offering a holistic and detailed portrayal of the island's evolution over the centuries.
Through the integration of digital technologies like augmented reality, QR codes, and web portals, visitors will have the unique opportunity to delve into the island's history, explore its archaeological and religious sites, and engage with the culture and traditions of Spinalonga in an entirely novel and interactive manner. These innovative tools will enable a more immersive and engaging experience, allowing visitors to connect deeply with the island's heritage and enrich their overall understanding and enjoyment of Spinalonga's historical significance.
