Gamified routes in the Maresme
Discover Maresme’s cultural heritage through gamified routes. Four routes cover the whole region with puzzles and riddles to be solved in each location. Complete the routes and get the rewards!
Consorci de Promoció Turística Costa del Maresme has created the gamified routes to promote the cultural heritage of the Maresme region among families and young people. Through the web app http://app.turismemaresme.cat you can access the four routes that divide the region geographically from south to north, you only need a mobile device with internet connection and geolocation activated. The web app is available in four languages: Catalan, Spanish, English and French.
The granny of the Maresme, the character created by the Consorci to promote family tourism, will be guiding you in these routes. They are named after her feathered friends: in the north you’ll find the Puput (Eurasian hoopoe) route, in the south Maresme, the Picotet (black woodpecker) route, and in the central area Cames Llargues (black-winged stilt) route and Xatrac (sterna) route.
Each of these itineraries has between 13 and 15 challenges. In each location a riddle must be solved. It can be a puzzle, a question to be answered, a hidden item... also, each riddle includes additional information and trivia. The objective is to discover the region in a fun way, visiting its corners while playing.
Plus, completing a game has a reward! Discounts can be obtained at several tourist companies in the region, such as a 2x1 on a children's route on the back of a donkey at Rukimon, a 10% discount at the rural tourism Can Rosich or a 2x1 for a sailing trip with Caraalvent. These and other rewards and waiting for you at the end of each route.
The routes pass through different municipalities, which is why the game can be stopped and resumed once we are in a new location.
