Did you know... you can share the Alhambra and Generalife with your friends and family by e-mailing them audio postcards 

The Alhambra leaves a mark... an indelible memory that can now be shared with friends and family via The City of Water . 12 audio postcards from the Alhambra and Generalife, a pioneering project created by the artists José Iges and Concha Jerez, which enables you to e-mail multimedia messages via the Alhambra website.
The City of Water (Ciudad de Agua), a website that can be accessed from the Alhambra website allows you to e-mail any of the postcards to a friend by clicking on the "Email This Page" icon situated in the bottom left hand corner of each page. You can also browse through each of the 12 postcards, which will instantly evoke the memories, sensations and emotions experienced by visitors to such a magical place as the Alhambra.
The City of Water is an attractive composition of sounds, which combines landscape and interpretative features of the Alhambra and its gardens through the sound of water, taking the listener on a path that reveals its gentle murmur and its cool rich qualities as it flows through the palaces.
The City of Water was inspired by a piece made by José Iges and Concha Jeréz for radio in 1994. The materials from this earlier work have been distributed in 12 audiovisual postcards, with which they have made a further 12 postcards with sound, photographic and video contents, which were recorded in the monument by the authors specifically for this project.
