worth a visit - informative museum. I would recommend the audio guide, which does cost an extra 3 euros, but is very good - adds detail, helps you find your way around and as its on a tablet with pictures, you can zoom in on some of the pictures to look at some finer details being highlighted

This Palace is small but has a lot of history. If you haven't read up on it, it might be worth getting the audio tour. Located next to the cathedral so you can plan to see both attractions in one day.

This amazing building next to the cathedral shows you some of Palma's famous history. We decided to go for the head phones to give us a guided tour. Well worth it. Only 20 euros for entrance and headsets. You are given an in depth talk as you walk through this historic building. Beautiful views out to sea from the terraces... More

The Palace sits directly opposite the Cathedral and the two together would make a full afternoon's sightseeing. At the entrance you are confronted by a confusing lobby dominated by a security scanner. The ticket desk is hidden behind and to your right, entry costing 7 euros per person. Again, hard to find and front right of the scanner, is the... More

Although the palace is interesting, I could have lived without visiting it. There is some interesting history in the building. There are also a lot of steps, if that is a problem for you.

Didn't venture inside but walked around the outside through the gardens that run alongside it. A picturesque building within walking distance of the grand cathedral.

The Cathedral was closed so we took a guided tour of the palace and paid euro 4 each on top of entry for a guided tour. SUPERB! Yolanda our Spanish Guide was excellent. Her English was impeccable and she was very knowledgeable. Definitely take the guided tour you learn so much. The palace has some amazing tapestries dating back centuries.... More

Just opposite the cathedral you have the palace which is overshadowed by the sheer size and decoration of the cathedral which is such a shame but makes it less busy and easier to take your time to wander around the palace at your own free will. If you have student ID then you only have to pay €4 but otherwise... More

An excellent place to visit. Lots to see. High security bags went through scanner and metal for visitors. Very quiet early in the morning. Lots to see from the arab baths to the kings and queens quarters with plush furnishings and original plaster wall paintings and the chapel. Views from the patio to the harbour, parc del a mar and...
