The San Francisco de Borja Sanatorium is strategically located at La Vall de Laguart (Alicante, Spain). It is founded in the early twentieth century to collect, isolate and treat leprosy. The architectural ensemble consists of more than 30 pavilions that were built during the century.
Archival work has been one of the most important parts of the research. Graphic and historic documents have been gathered and classified by date and building, which facilitates the study of each pavilion’s evolution.
The best way to manage such a big amount of information is through a GIS (Geographical Information System). Thus, every piece of information (historical pictures and data, plans…) will be georeferenced and stored in a SQL database (PostgreSQL).
The mobile app that we are developing will provide historical information of every building in Fontilles. The system will show not only related information to the building that the user is nearby but also the specific point of view of every picture. Therefore, using augmented reality tracking methods, it will be possible for the user to compare the present with the past.
This paper is developing part of the results of a research project in progress (El Sanatorio de San Francisco de Borja de Fontilles. Modelo de análisis para la recuperación integral de complejos sanitarios de valor patrimonial HAR2013- 42060-R) funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain.

The San Francisco de Borja Sanatorium has always been considered as one of the most important leprosariums in Europe.
We are combining GIS with Augmented Reality
