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.

This is an impressive old castle, well worth the visit, but it does seem to lack something as many of the rooms remain empty and much of the original art from inside had been removed and is housed in other museums. That leaves this with the feeling of an impressive structure which it is, but a little hollow.

The very helpful Tourist Office lady suggested that we visited the palace of the former king of the isle of Majorca. Used to visiting French Chateaux we were expecting something from a royal palace. The outside is an uninteresting stone wall which -we hoped- that would hide something worth seeing. After a walk through a dark hallway (and after paying an entrance fee) you enter the inside of the palace. Well it was actually the same wall, but now from the inside. Some uninteresting rooms with an art exhibition and a chapel that was not worth noticing concluded the visit.
Noth woth your time

Interesting building. The best bit was the view from the top - you can see for miles. Inside it reminded us of a film set for the three musketeers.

This was well presented and maintained and dates back to the medieval period. The palace was not well sign posted but we did eventually find it. It was a very enjoyable couple of hours.

The PdRdM is a landmark in Perpignan. Not only is it interesting to take the guided tour and learn about the history of the region and the link with Majorca, but it is also the venue for many free concerts in the summer. This is really a top destination, bu be sure to get the programme from the office de tourisme so you don't miss the excellent shows.
