The activity was carried out on Saturday March 5 in the archaeological classroom of the town of Herrera de Pisuerga. Throughout the morning, forming three groups, FSMLR arranged a visit adapted for the visually impaired to spread the activities carried out by the ROM Museum and Romanesque art . In total there were 54 people who enjoyed this workshop in which Romanesque art and the MUS.net project were made known.
