We present the "Ruta de las huellas fósiles", implemented in the village of Monsagro (Francia mountain range, Salamanca). Through six didactic and interpretative panels, we have included online access to the new technologies (smartphones, tablets, digital audio players...) and complementary information implemented in videos, QR codes, geoapps and games. The geological contents of the area are based mainly on the paleontological interest of its ichnofossils essentiatly produced by worms and trilobites of Lower Ordovician age, and the geomorphological interest of its appalachian relief, the Agadon river fluvial incision and its surficial formations. The visitors point out as strength of the route its easy and didactic character, as well as the direct citizen involvement in the conservation of the ichnofossils.
