The group of students using a street map of the town and divided into groups of 3 or 4 students, go through the town noting those shops that due to their characteristics they consider interesting for anyone who arrives in Santomera and does not know sustainable and / or traditional trade, as well as recognized places to taste traditional dishes of the area. With the information obtained and together with the teacher of Geography and History we jointly elaborated an audio guide.

The methodology emphasizes prior knowledge assessment, motivating learning situations, heritage education principles tied to Santomera, and collaborative, research-based learning activities. The development of the activity spans sessions dedicated to project introduction, contextualized learning, mental map creation, explanation recording, and sharing results. Evaluation encompasses initial data extraction, ongoing process assessment, and final results analysis to inform future project actions and their impact on students.
