Despite being a palace it feels really homely with carpets, tapestries and furniture in the rooms. It's in a fantastic location next to the cathedral with views of the sea and harbour and has lots of interesting history going back to Roman times. It costs 7 Euros entry and you can get an audio guide for another 3 Euros, though most of the rooms have a short written history in Spanish, German and English. We didn't bother with the audio guide.

The Almudaina is a must-see in Palma. The palace is a marvel of architecture, and its high-ceilinged rooms with elaborate wall decor and stately staircases are themselves worth the trip. The central courtyard features lion statues who sit waiting for visitors to admire them, and the interior of the palace offers room after room of history and stateliness. It’s a great visit for folks interested in the history of the island, of Spain, and of Europe, as well as for architecture buffs and those interested in stunning views and lush gardens.

If you are in Palma this is an obvious place to visit as it's next to the Cathedral and forms part of the skyline of the city.
Pleasant place to walk around and the main interest is the architecture as there is little furniture on display. Each room had some background information displayed in several languages which was helpful.
There are great views from the terrace looking out to the sea and port area and the inner courtyard is nice little oasis .
A nice place to spend some time wandering around. It is impressive and and still used occasionally for exhibitions and receptions.

It was lovely to walk through the palace and especially to see the views. There is airport-like security to enter and some of the staff were a little 'brusque'. Having said that it was interesting to learn a little of the island's history.
A good rainy day activity!

Beautiful palace with lovely views from the terraces. Lots of tapestries and some paintings but it is the architecture which was of most interest. The normal entrance ticket is 7 euros but it is free after 3pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays with an EU passport.

Along with the Arab Baths, I enjoyed very much visiting this palace. I loved the Arab/Moorish architecture and the vast rooms with soaring arches. I wish I had more time to enjoy the visit on a slower pace, but on a cruise layover, you have to keep moving. If I get to visit Maillorca again, I would give it more time to understand the history better. But for this short visit, the visuals were enough to warrant a visit.

I visited Palma at the end of February and between being a weekend, Carnival, crazy hours or simply not available many attractions were closed. This one was not closed and it has good long hours regardless of the day of the week or the season. For me, based on availability and content, this was the best the see in Palma. Other places, like the Cathedral is has short hours allowed for visiting or others like the Arab Baths are overrated.
Make this your priority, it makes sense, it is beautiful inside-out!

This place was stunning to go around. Tickets were cheap and once through security it was time to explore. Due to COVID regulations in place there was a one way system which didn't affect anything, except for a couple rooms where the sign postings were a little confusing. Learning Palma history was fun and seeing the stunning architecture with views of the marine were beautiful. The chapel was intriguing and glad to have experienced it.

Highly recommend

This was well worth the entry (I believe 7 euros p/p). Perfect while visiting the Cathedral. The studies of the Queen and King as well as the Grand Hall were pretty amazing. If you have an hour to kill, it's worth it.
