App Description

Museum Planet presents a comprehensive voice narrated digital photo tour of the El Escorial the summer home and burial place of Spanish Kings and Queens. Our tour is more comprehensive than any book ever produced. You will see and have explained to you all the chapels, monuments and artwork both inside and outside the historic El Escorial. The phenomenal frescoes by Pellegrino Tibaldi in the Philip II/ Juan de Herrera designed Imperial Library are shown and explained: Personification of Philosophy, Grammatica, Rhetoric, Dialectica, Arithmetica, Music, Astrologia, Geometry, Aelius Donatus, Antonio de Nebrija, Cicero, Quintilian, Hercules Gallicus and many more.

In many ways our tour is better than being there. You see it all in the comfort of your favorite chair. You can stop and start the tour; jump around in it by choosing particular photos or stop the tour to read the often extensive text - which is always on the same page as the photograph. You can enlarge all the color photos with a ‘swoosh’ of your finger.

Museum Planet takes you there: 83 photographs, 15.5 minutes of audio and 12,246 words, plus biographies.
