There is not much to it. If you have nothing else to do you can visit. Good place for picture taking.

Visited with family. Complete waste of money. Expensive and boring. Learned nothing. Meaningless empty rooms. Wedding in chapel so all that closed off. Avoid at all costs.

We visited the palace because it was next to the cathderal, which we had already been in. For myself, a 22 year old male holidaying with my girlfriend, this was totally boring. There is nothing interactive in the palace and it wasn't cheap to enter. It was literally a walk around and looking at carpets and old stones, which mostly... More

I have the chance of see tripadvisor before I go so we didn't get inside (and paid the entrance fee) based o other reviews. So from outside I have to say it seems big, and a kind pf arab palace that got intact to our days. The thing we liked mosted is the view of the Palau from the down... More

We paid to get in (wish I've checked Tripadvisor before going...) and wasn't the best value thing we did. Interesting to see inside a medieval Mediterranean palace: similar but different to similar castles / palaces in Northern Europe. Was vaguely interesting to see the official rooms used by the king and queen, but nothing as spectacular as many UK stately... More

I LOVED this palace! The entry was more expensive than the other attractions, but well worth it. Be sure to get the audio guides, as they point out some great artifacts and tell the stories behind each room. The tour wouldn't have been the same without them! This is a MUST SEE!

This can be seen free if you take your passport and you are an EU citizen. I would have felt seriously short changed if we had paid €18 entry fee for two.

This is another Mallorcian building that is very impressive. Gothic style. It is a pity they ban photography inside but that may be because it is an official royal residence and also an active military building. So there are airport style scanners! It is expensive if you have to pay. There is some lovely architecture and views out over Palma... More

The setting is amazing and I was surprised by the fascinating interior - the tapestries are fantastic. Don t be like me and forget to turn off your camera flash or you'll get told off!

A little more expensive than some of the other attractions at 9 Euros. there were no English booklets, and it was another 4 Euros for the pre-record head phones. However each room has a summary in English about the room, whose it was etc. The court yards are beautiful and the stone work magnificent. It was very quiet when we... More
