Quite interesting

Relatively austere stonewalled rooms decorated with tapestries and antique furniture. Very attractive queen anne's chapel and lovely terraces and courtyard.

It seemed this place can be overshadowed by the neighbouring cathedral which is also beautiful, but I would recommend making time to look around the palace too, it is definitely worth the very reasonable 7 euros entrance fee.

On an unusual day when it was lightly raining we noticed that the usual soldier was not on duty in his sentry box outside this Royal Palace and it was open to the public. If you check the flagpole on the Palace ( next to the Cathedral) and the Spanish flag and not the Royal standard is flying then the... More

Last time we docked in Palma, the Palace was closed so we were happy to find it open when we visited. There is a nominal admission fee and photography is not allowed, but the Palace holds some great artifacts and historical tapestries, created in Belgium. The Place is 1000 years old but is well preserved and offers great view of... More

Another must see, concession for those over 65 being 4 Euros. Very, very strict on the no photos policy. Again we read up on this prior to visiting, you can only imagine the festivity and opulence that once frequented the Palace during the 9 Kings that reigned. Just under the Palace in the square is the St Anne's chapel. A... More

Our first surprise was that with my Blue Badge we were admitted free. Secondly there was a lift which enabled me to access all floors of this ancient building. There were also chairs here and there. The museum aspect was very interesting and labelled in English. We also had a sound guide. The rooms themselves were fascinating and we couldn't... More

The Palau de l'Amudaina, which is located opposite the Palma Cathedral, is a beautiful historic building in the old part of Palma. It was one of the attractions which was available using our Palma Pass card, and a friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Well worth a visit for anyone interested in history and architecture.
