See this while visiting the cathedral

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

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.
