“Real history!”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

A lovely walk through the Palace and the little chapel showing the tapestries, the paintings and the rooms along with the Arab Baths. A real insight into Spanish royalty hundreds of years ago.

“The history is worth every penny/cent!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

There have been other reviews about this place, where the price was in question. We payed only 4 euros a person for the sound devices, while the entry itself was free of charge.

I recommend getting a sound device (or what it might be called), because then you will hear the whole story about this place. It is worth it! From the times it was built by the Arabs in the 10th century, to the Christian (Spanish) overtaking, to present times and the fact that is still used by the royal family... A must see!

Great place to see some Palma history. We got in free on a Friday... not sure if this is recurring or not.

“Overpriced and not much to see”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

I would only ever recommend you go here when it is free to enter i.e. if you are an EU citizen on a Wednesday or Thursday after 5pm; you need to provide proof via a passport/driving license. Otherwise it is a very expensive visit, around 10 euros for entrance and an additional 4 euros for an audio guide.
Much of it is closed off due to it being an official residence and for those who do not want to but the leaflets/guidebook/sudio description then it is difficult to know what you are looking at.
As a free visit though it is nice to look around and you get some nice views out on the terrace as well as some interesting artwork and archetecture to look at, but you can't take pictures of any of it.
