About this app

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.

The audio in the guide is informative, funny, and good quality. Unfortunately, this guide includes significantly fewer recordings than the official guide. Inside the palaces it's great, but in other areas of the Alhambra it gets a bit spotty.

Really pleasant way of giving a tour, from the point of view of inhabitants in the 15th century. Make sure you have your location tracking on (to follow the map more easily) and to start the guide as soon as you pass through the entrance and get your ticket scanned!

Really clear and fun descriptions of each area. Well worth it. I have used this app during two visits to the Alhambra four years apart. Got a lot out of it both times.
