Historically significant, and much to see. However access was limited, and collections/furnishings sparse. Incredible some of the restorations completed to date to return back to original design. Given entry fee and access I can only rate as average attraction - lots of potential. Use your imagination to make it come alive!

I did not like this palace. There are a lot of almost empty rooms (with some furniture and carpets). The money you spent for the tax it is not worth it.

I wonder how many visitors to the island even visit Palma, never mind the Cathedral (which is indeed a must) or this museum. Some of the history of the island - from Arab occupation, through absorption into Aragon, a brief period of independence, then Aragon again and so into Spain - comes out in the part of the palace which...

Well what can I say. Just afew rooms with abit of furniture hear and there.Not worth the effort of walking around and the entrance free. You only can see what they want you to see........which isn't much.

The Almudeina Palace is quite beautiful and quite big. There is a courtyard that is very big and has a fountain with the statue of a lion with water spouting from its mouth. This lion was made by the Moors and is quite old. The palace has many good tapestries that have conserved their color.

It is definitely overpriced - you will see only one half of the palace with mostly boring and not well furnished rooms. Just explore this Palace from outside, take some pictures and go to the Le Seu and spend your money there...

The ticket is quite expensive. Although the Le Seu Cathedral worths every penny, this Palace Surrogate doesn't. First of all you aren't allowed to take ANY pictures. Nor inside or outside. You can only visit about half of it. Very large rooms, very little decoration. Poorly done restauration (it looks mostly like modern art in tiny places). The visit for... More

The palace us must-see place. For 7 euros you will see portraits of kings, king's and queen's study rooms, anna domini chapel, Arab baths.

There is not much to it. If you have nothing else to do you can visit. Good place for picture taking.
