Abstract. Heritage valorisation is one of the greatest challenges that face countries in preserving their own identity from the globalization process. One of those scientific areas which allow this valorisation to be more attractive and at its bravest is the augmented reality. In this paper, we present an innovative augmented reality telescope used by tourists to explore a panoramic view with optional zooming facility, allowing thereby an accurate access to heritage information. The telescope we produced is generic, ergonomic, extensible, and modular by nature. It is designed to be conveniently set up anywhere in the world. We improve the practical use of our system by testing it right in the heart of Paris within a specific use case.
