The castle / palace is right next to the wonderful Mallorca Cathedral and to go inside there is a small admission charge. There are various rooms that you can wander around, although I did find the route through and around the palace a little confusing with some rooms that appeared to be dead ends, and I wondered if I missed...

The palace is open from 10:00, closing at 18:00 from October to March; entrance fee 7 euros - reduced to 4€ for children 5 to 16, over 65 and students under 25. Free entrance on certain days - Wednesday and Thursday, but only for EU and Ibero-American citizens. Quite interesting as you may see some of the rooms used by... More

The Royal Palace is on the must-see list for visitors to Palma. It is impressive - a historical palace that has been lovingly restored in recent decades. But there is little character or sense of the people who inhabited the palace in the past. Go see it - but also seek out the smaller treasures of Palma.

Actually it is more interesting to walk around this palace.. narrow streets are very picturesque there, beautiful old buildings and small wooden balconies.. very nice.. but inside the palace there is almost nothing to look at.. some old furniture and a few gobelins.. so.. enjoy the view and weather outside and safe 7 euro :)

This Royal Palace of Palma is also the 'Alcazar' or fort. The walls are in some place almost 5 ft thick. Nice place to visist. Rooms with period furniture. Splendid chapel.

The cost of entry is 7 euros per person but it is free on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons if you show your European passport. This is still a working royal palace and part of it houses the royal guards - There is a ceremonial changing of the guards at midday every Saturday. The Palace has large ceremonial rooms, paintings and... More

I love walking around and through old castles and churches. This one is not to be missed! The views from outside over the port is amazing.

Historic palace that is still in use by Spanish Royal family today. It was a lot quieter than the cathedral nearby. The kids loved listening to the audio guide and it was interesting to see what it's used for currently - the King and Queen's studies are fascinating.

Next door to Palma Cathedral, the palace is an excellent place to look around and add to the Palma experience. It's well-organised, peaceful and spacious, with no crowds or packed rooms. The history of the place goes back to the Moors, with layers of history on top. There is a chapel and a courtyard in addition to the many rooms... More
