Day visit with friends

We thought the architecture of the building was very good. The gardens were very pretty even in January, nice water feature.Very cold here in January, but worth the visit.

After enjoying a walk around the gardens we entered the palace, for 8 euros its was a bargain, with probably the oldest and grandest public toilets in palma, we really enjoyed and the views were stunning, very quiet as we went in march, would recommend

The former palace of the Arab King of Mallorca until 13th century. Then the palace of the Mallorcan Christian king. Very interesting

There is a minimal entrance fee to the palace, I believe under 10 Euros per person and less for kids, quite a bit of walking so wear comfortable walking shoes, its the centre of attraction for Palma and gets very busy, best to go early in the morning or early evening is my recommendation.

If you like history then this should be part of your itinerary in Palma. Try to go when it's not to busy in order to really enjoy the visit.

Interesting palace with great tapestries and furniture. Brilliant view onto the moat and the sea. The courtyard with the well is attractive as well. The chapel is gorgeous.

Definitely a must see and totally worth the audio tour. Get a great perspective on the history prior too and its current purpose. Highly recommended.

The castle / palace is right next to the wonderful Mallorca Cathedral and to go inside there is a small admission charge. There are various rooms that you can wander around, although I did find the route through and around the palace a little confusing with some rooms that appeared to be dead ends, and I wondered if I missed...

The Royal Palace is on the must-see list for visitors to Palma. It is impressive - a historical palace that has been lovingly restored in recent decades. But there is little character or sense of the people who inhabited the palace in the past. Go see it - but also seek out the smaller treasures of Palma.
