“Over-priced with little info”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

This is an interesting building but very expensive to visit (€9 pp) and they give you one sheet of info with hardly anything on it, so you wander from room to room not knowing what the paintings represent, or why the rooms are the way they are. I learned more about it in our LP tourist guide than on site!

“Go on Wednesday - free!”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

I'd visited before, but went again, and was delighted to be reminded that one day a week, usually Wednesdays, entrance is free to EC citizens, provided you can give proof. Luckily I could. The palace is well preserved, and the walk through is well planned, taking you through a variety of different rooms, each of which is well explained. The conservation is plain, which fits the rugged splendour of the largely medieval architecture. I found the royal rooms upstairs a little overblown, but that's royalty for you ... Couple this with a visit to the Seu cathedral - they're next to each other, and an excellent pairing.

“Royal Palace - Kid's Loved it!”
Reviewed 2 December 2008

The Royal Palace is still reserved for the use of the heirs of Spain's Royalty. We tried to visit the Palace in the afternoon, to discover that it was being used for a party and was closed to the public.

1/2 of the Palace is still the private quarters of the Royal Family. Army Guards are garrisoned here for the protection of the royal quarters.

The parts of the Palace that are open to the public, are a little sparse of furnishings. There are many elaborate medievel tapestries on the walls. The final rooms are nicely furnished.

Our children loved the suits of armor, the tunnels & passage ways. The views of the Cathedral & the yachts in the harbor are spectacular.
There are good views of the Bellver Castle across the valley.

The audio tour makes the tour worthwhile.
