The Almudaina palace is still used by the king of Spain for important meeting but you are welcome to take a walk around most of it. There are lots of fabulous tapestry to see and relics of times gone by. Take a walk through the gardens overlooking Mallorca harbour and the Parque de Mar or sit quietly in the courtyard... More

The Almudeina Palace is quite beautiful and quite big. There is a courtyard that is very big and has a fountain with the statue of a lion with water spouting from its mouth. This lion was made by the Moors and is quite old. The palace has many good tapestries that have conserved their color.

It is definitely overpriced - you will see only one half of the palace with mostly boring and not well furnished rooms. Just explore this Palace from outside, take some pictures and go to the Le Seu and spend your money there...

The ticket is quite expensive. Although the Le Seu Cathedral worths every penny, this Palace Surrogate doesn't. First of all you aren't allowed to take ANY pictures. Nor inside or outside. You can only visit about half of it. Very large rooms, very little decoration. Poorly done restauration (it looks mostly like modern art in tiny places). The visit for... More

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!
