Palais des Rois de Majorque (Palace of the Kings of Majorca) reviews
Worth the visit. Small fee(€4) to enter. Only part of the palace is open to visitors as much of the ramparts are off limits. Would be better if there were more period furnishing as it would raise the.... more »
Decided to visit the Palais based on the comments recommending the wonderful view. There were parts inaccessible when we visited therefore this may have been why but it was difficult to see any view..... more »
Such an amazingly well-kept place! I didn't expect much from this place up front, but the palace has been very nicely restored. Take the tour; you'll love it. It's not an activity that fills up an entire day, but definitely worth a visit. The views from the tower are amazing. What's even more interesting is the architecture: influences from across the centuries are all very visible, with the typical Catalan parapets, the Romantic columns, and the chapel interiors beautifully decorated in medieval style. Some of the wall paintings are still visible, as are some of the saints.
I went on a Saturday (around noon) and it was empty! I had the place to myself pretty much. The staff here is great and very helpful. The palace itself is stunning and I recommend going into every room and exploring all its levels!
