Owner description: A royal palace has stood on this site since soon after the Arab conquest.
Reviewed 29 July 2014

The ticket is quite expensive. Although the Le Seu Cathedral worths every penny, this Palace Surrogate doesn't.
First of all you aren't allowed to take ANY pictures. Nor inside or outside.
You can only visit about half of it.
Very large rooms, very little decoration.
Poorly done restauration (it looks mostly like modern art in tiny places).
The visit for all of it lasted for about 20 minutes.

I don't quite understand the overrated security measures, they have a X-Ray machine at the entrance which scans your bags. :|

The palace us must-see place. For 7 euros you will see portraits of kings, king's and queen's study rooms, anna domini chapel, Arab baths.

There is not much to it. If you have nothing else to do you can visit. Good place for picture taking.

Visited with family. Complete waste of money. Expensive and boring. Learned nothing. Meaningless empty rooms. Wedding in chapel so all that closed off. Avoid at all costs.

We visited the palace because it was next to the cathderal, which we had already been in. For myself, a 22 year old male holidaying with my girlfriend, this was totally boring. There is nothing interactive in the palace and it wasn't cheap to enter. It was literally a walk around and looking at carpets and old stones, which mostly have been reconstructed anyway. Not worth the time, effort or money. Very disappointing.
