Description

The Alhambra of Granada MUSMon.com Audio Guide explains in a clear, relaxed, accurate way this World Heritage Site. It comfortably guides you, at your own pace, using interactive maps and pictures. It tells you everything you need to know through a 70-minute professional recording, making your visit more entertaining and memorable.

With our mobile Audio Guide, you will understand the intrigues that make Boabdil to become the last Sultan of Granada. You will also learn how this story is related to a captive Christian princess who converted into Islam and married King Muley Hacén. You will know how this monument evolved from a fortress into a palatial citadel. We will show you details of the defensive construction, the shape of the doors and entries, when and why the towers were turned from square to round, or how it was magnified with its most beautiful patios and halls during its golden age in the reigns of Muhammad V and Yusuf I.

You will learn how the Catholic Monarchs’ grandson, Charles V, the most powerful man in the world at the time, had his palace built here.

We will explain to you the influence of the romantic travellers, especially Washington Irving who, with his book Tales of the Alhambra, contributed to spread the knowledge about the Alhambra and its eventual recovery at a time when the monument was deplorably abandoned.

We will also explain to you Islamic culture and art and provide you with the key to the history of Alhambra, all livened up with anecdotes about personalities who passed by, such as Napoleon, the Count of Tendilla, Chateaubriand and Sorolla.

The app allows you to:
•Listen to entertaining, quality narrations developed by professionals.

Decent App, better than nothing

The audio guide on this is decent - not of the same quality as some of the official ones available at other sites, but given that Alhambra currently doesn't have its own, this is a pretty good substitute. The style is kind of odd and distracting, but it still had good information (wish it had more detail tho). While I do wish there were an official audio guide available, in the absence of that, I would recommend this app - it definitely made my visit better without the rushed feeling of being with a tour group guide (I guess if you have the $$ you could hire a private guide).

Worked well

This app was informative and very helpful in touring the Alhambra. There is no audio guide currently available and this was a very good substitute. It would be a bit easier if the map could show your position but all in all my husband and I really enjoyed it.

Entertaining and informative for the whole family

We loved this app for our visit to the Alhambra. Completed our visit in 3 hours. App was easy to follow. Might have been nice to have a commentary or two in the gardens. But overall, this was the right level of detail for us, engagingly presented, and easy to navigate. Suitable for children 10 and up. Recommend.
