Owner description: Castle & Fortifications A royal palace of the medieval Mediterranean Located in the heart of Perpignan, this 13th century palace was for nearly a century the center of the ephemeral Kingdom of Mallorca. Its construction, completed after 1300 in the Gothic style, recalls the status of Perpignan as economic, political and cultural center of the medieval Mediterranean.

I have visited many castles in my European travels. This one is the least memorable. Touring this castle is akin to looking at just a thing. The castle is pretty intact. There is a lot of potential for a more interesting visit. There is no furniture or furnishings to look at. Just an empty building. Pretty much a wasted asset for the city. On the up side the admission cost is minimal.

Even though this is a landmark in Catalan history, there's actually very little left to see in this otherwise immense palace. Most rooms have been refitted, some even plastered to be transformed into galleries. This was to me the worst example of modernization ever seen, especially since this palace has no equal in Europe. To visit on am improbable rainy day...

We only went here on the last day of a fortnight's holiday, and were really glad we finally made it. It was an overcast day and it started raining while we were there, which may account for the small number of other visitors that day. We particularly enjoyed the fragments of painted plaster and the creaky wooden stairs, and looking out over the city.

The building reflects the way palaces were built in the twelve century. Very simple , functional but lovely lines. I liked the palace
for its structure and that it will give a student of perspectives many examples to work on.
