  • I loved it! Very nice place to visit. Beautiful palace with a very interesting old arab style. Beautiful court to have pictures in. The palm trees with the arab style make the castle very exotic and unique in this island. The visit is much more worth it than the cathedral in my opinion. I loved the Queen room. Everything is well maintained. I strongly recommend it.
  • Well worth the small admission fee. This is still the summer home of the King of Spain and where he comes for important meetings. There are some fabulous tapestries on the walls, lots of ancient artefacts and some beautiful gardens to walk through.
  • Certainly the cathedral is a much better choice if you had to choose. Not worth 7 Euro. In my opinion there is nothing special to see.
  • A very nice palace/fort, especially because of it's Arab origin. It has some nice details and waterworks.
  • Beautiful sight with a little museum
