Palma de Mallorca

King James II ordered to extend the old Almoravid fortress, Palace of the Almudaina during the Muslim domination and adapt it to Gothic style to convert it into the seat of the Crown of Aragon. Today only a few rooms are open to the public, where one can see pieces of furniture, tapestries and paintings from the fifteenth to the twentieth century. Highlights include the Hall of Kings, in which nine paintings hang on the wall (some of them portraits of the monarchs of Majorca), and a room dedicated to Roman, Arab and Christian remains.

The Arab Baths which can also be visited are settled on a hypocaust, an oven built under the floor to heat the different sections. Of Levantine Gothic style and with a portal of Romanesque Catalan origin, the chapel of Santa Ana opens to the beautiful Patio de Armas, where on summer nights concerts of classical music are offered. In this chapel the relics of Santa Práxedes are preserved.
