The island of Mallorca was ruled by the Moors from 902 to 1229.
The site of the cathedral in Palma de Mallorca was host to the Islamic mosque, reputedly of great beauty. The cathedral was built over the mosque and the temple was destroyed in the process, which is a shame in a way.
Next to the cathedral, however, we can still enjoy the old Almudaina Palace, which used to be the seat of the Vali (Moorish Governor). At the time of the Christian Reconquista, this fortress also suffered some damage, but after Mallorca became a Kingdom under Jaume II, Almudaina Palace was rebuilt to its present shape and glory.
Today, Almudaina Palace is the official seat of the Spanish King and Queen during their visits on the island. Part of the building is also open to the public as a museum. Admission is free for Mallorca residents on Wednesday mornings.
