“Beautiful Palace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Beautiful gothic palace with an interesting history. Huge rooms which were sparsely furnished, but contained lovely tapestries and paintings. Good value for the admission charges.

“Interesting palace, views and tapestries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed wandering through the palace which had relatively few tourists compared to the cathedral. Tapestries and design were interesting. We didn't use an audio guide so may have missed historical information but found it enjoyable.

“Beautiful But Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

With a 9 euro entrance fee and 4 euro for an audio guide I felt it was overpriced for aprroximately 1 hour, we didn't rush either. If the audio guide wasn't purchased there was very little information in each room. This is the first time we have had to purchase a audio guide and there was no mention of this on the price board. It is only offered after you have paid and on your way in. Other than that the Palace is very beautiful and has wonderful views over Palma.

“waste of money and time...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Not worth the money. Ticket seller told us that we could see how the kings lived. Well, they must have lived on the floors, because there is not much furniture to be seen. A few chairs, wood boxes and many carpets on the walls and that’s it. Unless you are into rags, it is not worth the visit.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Make sure you get the audio guide - it isn't always offered and is free. It is next to Le Seu (cathedral). A good place to take nice photos over the city of Palma too.
