Ever since we moved to Granada in 2006, we’ve loved wandering through Granada’s streets and alleyways, sitting down at a café terrace in a charming square, or simply pausing to take in the incredible views of the Alhambra, Albaicín and Sierra Nevada. It’s the perfect way to soak up Granada’s rich 1,000-year history and culture. Now you can follow three of our favourite routes with audio tours we’ve created using VoiceMap.
VoiceMap is an innovative app that uses your phone’s GPS to automatically play you audio based on your location. Ben will guide you around the city, telling you about the sights you pass on the way. There’s no fixed schedule, so you can go at your own pace.
The three tours cover Granada’s historical centre and the Albaicín, Sacromonte and Realejo neighbourhoods. Each tour takes about 75 minutes, but allow more time if you want to go into the sights along the way, linger at the viewpoints or stop for a coffee or tapas.
Albaicín and Sacromonte
You can purchase one of the tours from the VoiceMap website or through the VoiceMap app, which you can download from iTunes or Google Play.
Once you’ve bought a tour, you can listen to it as many times as you like. The app uses GPS to navigate, so if you download it somewhere you have access to WiFi, you won’t need to use data roaming at all. If you’re not in Granada at the moment, you can also listen to it as a virtual tour.
If you do one of the tours, we’d love you have your feedback, so please write a review. In the future, we hope to also to offer the tours in Spanish.
