La Almudaina Royal Palace

With a spectacular location by the sea in Palma de Mallorca and next to Palma Cathedral, the Royal Palace of La Almudaina narrates the history of Mallorca, offering a delightful mixture of the different cultures that came to the island to leave their mark.


Due to the beautiful location of the Almudaina, the different civilisations that have occupied the island have passed through the place creating different spaces adapted to their tastes and needs.

The area was occupied since the Talayotic period, and sometime later the Romans also decided to settle in the same place.

The first version of the current palace, in the Muslim style, was built in 1281 and years later it was modified by King James II, who gave it its current form.

Touring The Palace

It is also worth paying attention to the Chapel of St. Anne, a true Gothic jewel during the visit.
