This Royal Palace of Palma is also the 'Alcazar' or fort. The walls are in some place almost 5 ft thick. Nice place to visist. Rooms with period furniture. Splendid chapel.

This is still a working royal palace and part of it houses the royal guards - There is a ceremonial changing of the guards at midday every Saturday. The Palace has large ceremonial rooms, paintings and... More

I love walking around and through old castles and churches. This one is not to be missed! The views from outside over the port is amazing.

Historic palace that is still in use by Spanish Royal family today. It was a lot quieter than the cathedral nearby. The kids loved listening to the audio guide and it was interesting to see what it's used for currently - the King and Queen's studies are fascinating.

Next door to Palma Cathedral, the palace is an excellent place to look around and add to the Palma experience. It's well-organised, peaceful and spacious, with no crowds or packed rooms. The history of the place goes back to the Moors, with layers of history on top. There is a chapel and a courtyard in addition to the many rooms... More

This place is huge and looks to be part of the Cathedral or the same grounds at least. It's proximity to the gardens makes it look festive as well. Very nice indeed.

The Palace Almudaina is one of the major tourist attractions in Palma de Mallorca. The Palace was easy to find - opposite the other attraction - the Cathedral La Seu. Both are in the Parc de la Mar area. The Palace Almudaina, now a summer residence of the Spanish royal family, has been a royal palace since the 13th Century... More
