Impressive architecture, with some rooms still used for official activities, so much history to learn. The view is fantastic, the furniture and the surroundings are amazing !

A small group of us toured the palace and enjoyed seeing it. I would not call it is must see sight, especially for those who have seen palaces and castels before, but it was ineresting. The palace has good information in English so we did not purchase the audio guide. There are good views of the water from the balcony... More

Lovely beautiful palace, however quite pricey for entrance, €7 per adult. There's a limited amount of the castle you can go in and you get round fairly quick. However still worth the visit.

the palace has lovely rooms inside with nice tapestries in some rooms. the king and queen of Spain use the palace to receive guests from other countries and it will impress anyone to be invited there. the courtyard is large and pleasant with views onto the end of the cathedral and its rose window. there is an x ray check...

A building offering a glimpse into the Arabic influence on the ruling generations which succeeded the departure of the Moors. Very convenient to the centre of Palma. Still a working building, too, so you tread where the royal family has its Mallorcan home.

I thought it was a very attractive area as a whole. It was actually quite nice to just walk around it to admire it's strength. It was originally a fort before it became a royal palace. To me, it was more impressive looking at it as a fort, rather than a palace. We didn't pay to enter it, and it... More

I toddled along to the palace and when I was buying my ticket they seemed to have audio guides, but they also had a sign saying that there were guided tours for an extra €4 on top of the entry cost. I decided to splash out on one and ended up being the only person on the tour! I enjoyed... More

It was great to have an insight into the royal living. From the terrace the panorama is beautiful. For me it was worth to see it.

As most of people say it is far from the imagination of real and big palace and there is not so much to see but even that I enjoyed it, it is very nice place. Cathedral La Seu is close so you can visit both places.

I can see from reading previous reviews that Palau de l'Almudaina splits opinion on whether it is worth visiting or not. I visited my myself when I had a spare hour or so. I hired a headset which I think was well worth it as I think it really added to my understanding of the palace especially as it is... More
