Walking on words is an invitation to tour Majorca in good company: by the side of the artists who have written on the island and about the island. The words of Jules Verne, Frédéric Chopin, Robert Graves, Julio Cortázar, Josep Pla and Villalonga, etch out new paths in the landscape and give extra depth to our own view of each place we visit. They connect history with the present, architecture with the landscape, cuisine with our traditions. Walking on words takes us beyond words, and opens new doors so we can admire our heritage with the exciting WOW app, a resource based on augmented reality and geolocalization technologies to show the island as never before. Walking on words, in short, is a guided tour around the real Majorca, revealing the delights of a paradise full of history, life and literature.
This App WoW! is a resource guide associated with the project Walking on Words, Literary Majorca, designed and developed by the Foundation Casa Museu Llorenç Villalonga, Pare Ginard i Blai Bonet. More information unde: http://www.walkingonwords.com.
