Interesting palace / castle with a lot of tapestries, pictures, antique furniture etc and interesting rooms to see plus nice terrace over looking sea. Could do with a cafe as has a great atmosphere and would be a great place to sit and have a coffee

We thought it was interesting to hear the history, and seeing the tapestries on display for close up views......some as old as 16 th Century. We paid an extra 3 euros each for the audio guide and it was worth it. If we hadn't used this we would have just wandered around and not learnt much, or found it interesting... More

Admission price is 7 euros and, as another reviewer pointed out, you need to go through a little metal detector (because part of the building is a military base). The building itself is beautiful--especially the courtyard but also some of the interior rooms--and you get great views from the garden. I felt though that I was just wandering around (wandering...

The history of this palace, just in front of the Cathedral is very interesting. You get a chance to visit part of the building and learn about the history of it. Worth a visit after visiting the Cathedral.

Although an imposing building it is heavily restored with few restored and copied paintings and little period artefacts and furniture and as a consequence was of limited interest. EU citizens with appropriate ID ( driving licence or passport) are admitted free after 5pm otherwise not good value at 7 euros.

Beautiful building and fabulous views. Expensive to get in. Inside tour about 30 minutes. Not really for children.

Interesting palace but a bit sterile. Considering it was in the middle of August and Palma was busy, this place was quiet. Security very tight and you go thru an airport style system to get in. Also we seemed to be watched throughout.

A full of history place to visit. I suggest to take the audio guide from entrance for a better visit.

It's nice and all, but the visit is very short, almost every part of the palace is restricted and in comparison with other palaces, it's not that special.

This palace is not entirely accessible, and they are quite strict about picture taking. despite this, it is a nice experience.
