Palau de l'Almudaina or La Almudaina was built in the 10th century as an Arab fortress and then at the beginning of the 14th century became the official residence of the Spanish Royal Family on order of King James II. La Almudaina was converted into Gothic style but elements of Islamic architecture are still obvious. Home to numerous interesting historic features as well the Museum of National Heritage, the palace is now a must-visit attraction when in Palma. Inside, visitors will find a collection of furniture, tapestries and paintings from different eras. Located opposite the Palma Cathedral and overlooking the harbor, La Almudaina also offers stunning views of the surrounding area.

Muslims visiting Palau de l'Almudaina will not be able to find prayer facilities within its premises. The city of Palma is known to be home to a small population of Muslims, which means that Muslim tourists will be able to locate a couple of mosques. Two prominent mosques in the city are Mezquita Abderrahman de Palma de Mallorca and Mezquita Ihsan.
There are no known eateries at the Palau de l'Almudaina. Muslims visiting the palace will therefore have to dine at one of the few Halal restaurants in the city of Palma. Nawaab and Aladdin Palace are both known to serve Halal food. Muslim tourists can also dine at local non-Halal restaurants after making sure the dishes they order do not consist of any non-Halal ingredients.
