Nice palace to visit - really good audio guide to take from the front entrance and get them to walk through the history and the rooms.

I preferred this to the Cathedral. Interesting to walk around, views from some of the rooms are lovely.

This would be a beautiful sight anywhere, but it is special situated on the shore of the Mediterranean - a sight to take your breath away!

Whilst waiting for the service in the cathedral to finish we visited the Palace which is now a museum. It is definitely worth the extra for the audio guide and you can chose a 40 min or 75 min tour,

Impression of a municipal building rather than a 'palace'. Good views from wall, pretty courtyard and new meeting hall is impressive space. However wouldn't class it as a must do.

An interesting place you can visit with 7 euros/pers. However, we were disappointed buy the way things regarding the organisation, were managed. For example, the app for the smartphones, that was cheaper than the tablet itself, in that week didn't work. Another example is that the carpets on the floors are not protected in anyway, or surroundedn by anything, but... More

The first building on the hill was of Arabian origin. Today the palace has an official part and the second part is a museum open for publc. The palace contain also the small Saint Ann Chapel. This fortress is a stove, massive, impressive, visible from afar, situated opposite the cathedral La Seu. I enjoyed visiting here although I was tiring.

Breath taking architecture. Beautiful Terrace and square. I really enjoyed the audio tour which told me about the history of the building, tapestries, paintings and furniture.

This is ideal for those hot midday siesta times. The tour is up to an hour and a half long or a shorter 45 min and self guided with an electronic guide. I strongly recommend bringing headphones as if on a budget you can just but one guide per couple and split an ear plug each as you stroll through... More

If you can time your visit to avoid the swarm of cruise ship passengers you can have a very peaceful time here. The audio guide is very helpful (extra charge).
