Pleasant building

Worth a visit. Right next to cathedral. Go early and it is quieter. Cool rooms showing off centuries of history. Good views out to sea from here.

This palace is a must-see while in Palma. The rooms are not overly ornate, but they hold a lot of history. A visit of about one hour seemed to be a good amount of time. The building also offers some amazing views of Palma from one of the balconies available to the public. I do wish I had rented the... More

It seemed this place can be overshadowed by the neighbouring cathedral which is also beautiful, but I would recommend making time to look around the palace too, it is definitely worth the very reasonable 7 euros entrance fee.

Relatively austere stonewalled rooms decorated with tapestries and antique furniture. Very attractive queen anne's chapel and lovely terraces and courtyard.

On an unusual day when it was lightly raining we noticed that the usual soldier was not on duty in his sentry box outside this Royal Palace and it was open to the public. If you check the flagpole on the Palace ( next to the Cathedral) and the Spanish flag and not the Royal standard is flying then the... More

Last time we docked in Palma, the Palace was closed so we were happy to find it open when we visited. There is a nominal admission fee and photography is not allowed, but the Palace holds some great artifacts and historical tapestries, created in Belgium. The Place is 1000 years old but is well preserved and offers great view of... More

Another must see, concession for those over 65 being 4 Euros. Very, very strict on the no photos policy. Again we read up on this prior to visiting, you can only imagine the festivity and opulence that once frequented the Palace during the 9 Kings that reigned. Just under the Palace in the square is the St Anne's chapel. A... More
