The “Alcázar Real” in Majorca. Its name means citadel outside the city walls.
La Almudaina Palace was seat of the independent kingdom of Majorca during the reigns of Jaime I, Sancho I and Jaime II, until it became part of the kingdom of Aragón under Pedro IV. The castle visible today is the result of modifications to the Moorish fortress constructed from 1281. The building comprises a rectangular tower, home to the King’s Palace, Queen’s Palace, a hall known as Tinell, the Royal Chapel and Patios. Inside, special mention should be made of a range of tapestries and furniture from different periods of history. It is currently used by His Majesty the King of Spain as a residence for official summer ceremonies.
