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

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 has been a royal palace of spanish kings for centuries. Originally a muslim fortress (1281) but then modificated. Impressive tapestries and furniture, magnificent sea views. Located at the Cathedral area. Nowadays it is sometimes used as official ceremonies of King of Spain.

We walked around this wonderful building several times and it's just as beautiful in the day or in the evening when it's lit up, it worth seeing it in both daylight and in the dark. The building is very impressive and the shape of the building is amazing and very grand and it is easy to walk around the outside... More

What inspiring architecture. Though walking around on a hot day can be intense the beauty which Lies around is well worth it. Great for all the family although maybe not for buggies or wheelchairs as there are steps. A step back in time and an educational break away from shopping!

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,
