Establishing the meanings and relationships that exist between the creation of heritage educational content of applications with elements of mobile pedestrian navigation and mobile augmented reality and learning processes through mobile devices is the objective of this research. From this portable and mobile context, a teaching process linked to territorial information on the architectural and historical heritage corresponding to the cities of Salamanca (Spain) and Santiago (Chile) has been developed, proving its educational effectiveness. Methodologically, the research focuses on two areas: the educational design of recourses for learning through augmented reality and mobile pedestrian navigation on heritage contents and the determination of the modes of understanding and educational effectiveness of the app created in relation to other traditional learning tools. In this way, the construction of a patrimonial thematic unit has been developed with the determination of the scope of this tool in the mobile learning processes considering the processes of identity and local culture.
