Metaverses, those virtual worlds online where users can create content, have a potential that covers very diverse fields such as culture, science, education and cultural heritage. It goes beyond acting as a generator of human connections and a host of social activities, opening the possibility of sharing the same living experience in a "virtual physical place". This paper describes the experience of the authors in the interactive virtual reconstruction of the emblematic Torre de Hercules of A Coruña in Second Life, made for educational purposes, focusing on the problems encountered and the technical solutions used for its realization.
