    A place full of charm, but we can deprive themselves of the Interior paid visit, the outside is just beautiful with a beautiful view on the sea

    The Palau de l'Almudaina is an incredibly beautiful building which is situated vis a vis the Cathedral. We had not, unfortunately, an opportunity to come in and look. It is clear that here is hiding a lot of history.

    This is a beautiful old building, which still serves a house for Spanish Royal family. For that reason, only one-half of the palace is available for visiting. It was always used as a palace, starting ...  more »

  • The outside is nice, the view to the sea standing in the garden area but the inside, I feel the authorities could've put more decorations and objects. It's basically almost empty. It's got the odd stuff. The entry is €7. Nice historical place overall.
  • This is not a very exciting castle but could be worth a visit and the inner courtyard was beautiful. While doing a visit to the cathedral could someone spend some time to look at this castle too.
  • Beautiful from the outside, the interior wasnt that great, but rather worth visiting.
  • It was okay, nice historical building with a nice terrace but nothing too special. I cant say it was worth of 7€ for entrance
  • Very beautiful place Loads to see and has beautiful views overlooking the port of Palma Would recommend and it very cheap

Where to stay in Palma de Mallorca

To experience the heart of Palma, opt to stay in the the inner ring of La Avinguadas street, where lies the historical city center. The mostly traffic-free district is filled with beautiful island architecture housing boutique hotels, historical restaurants, and lovely plazas, and is only a short walk from the city beach and port. The Santa Catalina neighborhood is another popular option for accommodation as it is well known for its restaurants, daily market, and close proximity to the city's main sites. Just east of the city center is Portixol, a beachside neighborhood that still retains its charm of an old fishing village. For a small town beach atmosphere, stay along Platja de Palma, the beach stretching east of the city center.
