Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that combines the real world with a virtual object in 2 or 3 dimensions. It is related to a real environment that contains virtual objects of different forms, including images, videos and audios. Such technology is being currently utilized in the tourism industry with the purpose of promoting and improving the tourist experience. The application developed enables the user to interact and manipulate objects using a mobile device to know about the place that the user wishes to visit, the location, the features and a photo gallery of each church, for which Vuforia, Unity and Visual Studio were utilized. Results show that the application offers a new tourist experience and makes the visits and tours more enjoyable, providing attractive, informative and interactive means to the tourist.
