Palais des Rois de Majorque

Interesting
This palace was built with the emergence of the short-lived Kingdom of Majorca (1276-1344), created by James I the Conqueror for his young son James II. The tower - Tour de l'Hommage - leads to the cour d'honneur with its two storeys of galleries. There is a lovely ceiling painted in Catalan colours in the queen's chamber. You reach the upper chapel via a Romanesque portal with alternating blue and pink marble archstones. Above the royal chapels is the keep, the palace's unassailable bastion.
