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

Our first surprise was that with my Blue Badge we were admitted free. Secondly there was a lift which enabled me to access all floors of this ancient building. There were also chairs here and there. The museum aspect was very interesting and labelled in English. We also had a sound guide. The rooms themselves were fascinating and we couldn't... More

The Palau de l'Amudaina, which is located opposite the Palma Cathedral, is a beautiful historic building in the old part of Palma. It was one of the attractions which was available using our Palma Pass card, and a friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Well worth a visit for anyone interested in history and architecture.

We had visited the palace about 20 years before but decided to refresh our memories. We picked up an audio guide which was helpful as we could share it and replay things of interest. the building which has origins back in the 10th century when Majorca was ruled by the Moors is very attractive and not over decorated whilst the...

Although we didn't enter into the Palace for the visit, it's in the path between La Llotja and the Cathedral. The place is breathtaking, huge and decorated to the detail. The fountains are amazing. There's a lot of stairs going up and down, so be ready if you go with children / stroller. There's some trash left by some visitors... More

I wanted to visit the Cathedral which is next door to the Castle but since that was not open I decided to visit the Castle which was open to public. I do not regret this visit. The Castle is very beautiful and worth the visit. You can go out on the balcany and see a good view over the harbour... More

There is no photography inside the palace which was a bit disappointing as many of the exhibits would be ideal to photo guess they are trying to sell you the glossy expensive brochure. Nice to visit on a rainy day

Definitely get the audio tour, and take your time wandering through and soaking up the atmosphere. The staff appear to be there more to make sure you don't touch stuff (who knew you shouldn't walk on the rug? It's on the floor, for goodness sake!)

If your in the city and have time to walk thru an old palace, then you should visit this museum. This is a very good restored historic palace.
