This palace is still sometimes used by the Spanish Royal Family. Unfortunately the audio guide is extra to the admission price - €7 + €4. It is pretty much essential though or you will walk through it very quickly. There are some lovely rooms and artwork. Worth a visit.

Visited on the way to the Cathedral but wasn't too impressed, cost 7 euros but couldn't enter a lot of it, was not allowed to take photos. Disappointed.

We got in free as on certain days entrance is free for citizens of EU and Latin American countries - you just need to show your driving licence or passport. The palace itself is quite pretty - it's the official residence of the King of Spain in Mallorca, although he never actually stays there, it's more a ceremonial place where... More

We didn't visit inside, but it is a nice walk while you're on your way to visit the cathedral. For sure it's one of the most important sites in Palma

If you find yourself in Palma, get yourself along to the Almudiana palace. It is opposite the cathedral and the building houses many treasures. It is a great insight into Palma's past, the rooms are large, as you would expect, and the paintings and tapestry's are spectacular. It also offers great views over the bay of Palma from many of...

I visited here with 7 and 5 year old boys. It's not that suitable for small children and there is a charge for them. Interesting enough but not good value for money and a short enough visit. The cathedral might be a better choice.

Originally an Islamic fort, converted into a royal palace by the Mallorcan kings following their seizure of the island from the Moors. Dramatic architecture, timbered ceilings and Flemish tapestries which recount ancient stories such as the death of Cleopatra. You don't need long to look round but it's definitely worth it.

El Palau de l’Almudaina was a citadel in Moorish times when the governor of Mallorca lived here. After the reconquest of the island by the Christian Jaume 1 the medieval Mallorcan kings lived in this building. Nowadays there are state apartments here and the present king has offices which are used when he is on the Island. It is said... More

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
