We were impressed by the Mudejar architecture of this beautifully restored palace. Make sure you stop by the gift store for the well done audio guide. It makes the visit very enjoyable.

Our bad luck. We visited on what was more or less the equivalent of Veterans Day and the Aljafiera was closed for filming some commemorative event. DARN!!! But we were able to wander the exterior, which is jaw-droppingly beautiful. We can only imagine the treasures...More

Initially, once we arrived at the palace, we were disappointed as it's not a beautiful building. However..... Once inside, there are some stunning interiors, with beautiful painting, so that's well worth seeing. On Sundays, we found that entry is free. However, it shuts around 2pm,...More

I went by public transport, which was easy. From memory, there was plenty of street parking nearby, but it was a Sunday. It is away from the CBD, so it should be OK
