The Mancomunitat de municipis de la Ribera Alta offers a digital catalog of the region's heritage with RIBERANA. Using different formats such as virtual tours, 360 videos, photographs, 3D, ... several elements are shown as part of the rich natural, archaeological, bibliographic, museum and intangible heritage of the municipalities of La Ribera. RIBERANA is the result of the participation of the Mancomunitat de la Ribera Alta in the Interreg Europe CD-ETA project and the creation of the Heritage Digitization department, with two objectives: the dissemination and the digital preservation of the heritage.
The catalog of digital elements of RIBERANA is being constantly updated with museums, natural places, oral heritage,… The Mancomunitat de la Ribera Alta has documented its work and published a guide of the department of Heritage, so that other local entities can replicate our experience. The guide describes the methodology used and is available in English, Spanish and Valencian.
The Mancomunitat de la Ribera Alta, in collaboration with other partners from different European regions, is part of the European Interreg - Europe CD - Eta (Collaborative Digitization of Natural and Cultural Heritage) project for heritage digitalization.
