The Alhambra of Granada 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.
•Quickly and easily find the work you want to listen to through its location on the map, a detailed picture gallery, or a search by author or title.
•Choose between the suggested itineraries or simply guide yourself following your own tastes and time schedule.

•Access all the useful information about the museum: opening hours, accessibility, website, etc.

Doesn’t work

Disappointed because this guide was essentially useless for a self guided tour. None of the numbers on the keypad entry correspond to the official route established by the Al Hambra. There are huge portions of missing information when it comes to the map and the many locations spread across the complex. In the end I didn’t end up using this app at all. Frustrated by the user experience as noted above. Ended up renting an official audioguide for €6 which made the rest of my self-guided tour actually enjoyable. Waste of $3 and a bunch of time figuring out that this app doesn’t correspond to the official route. Wish I had bought the official audioguide at the main entrance, I would have learned much more about the space with my limited time visit.

Totally worth it!

I’ve never written an app review, but had to because this was such a great experience! Great information, entertaining, and a very affordable way to tour this amazing site, get historical info, and go at your own pace, away from a large tour group. Highly recommend!!!

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.

Excellent app that provides a rich, entertaining tour of Alhambra. Very engaging narrative that expertly weaves together fun stories and the riveting history of this amazing site. A must-have since there are few alternatives for English tours at Alhambra, and in fact is far better than most audio or in person guides I have experienced. The app really brings the history to life. I highly recommend.

Worth it

Great little app for the price. Probably not the most thorough guide, but enough info to take you on a decent tour of the Alhambra. Some of the point of interest names don’t actually match what they’re called on site, but otherwise it was very easy and helpful.

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.

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).

Made our tour!

Loved this app!! Easy to use, excellent narration, interesting, simple to navigate, covered all parts of our visit to Alhambra and Generalife. We were able to go at our own pace and enjoy learning history and stories of the palaces and their inhabitants. Don't have time for a tour? Take this app with you!!
