If you stroll along the Paseo del Seu, besides a lovely seaside experience, you'll also encounter Majorca's most important historic monuments. Just beyond the cathedral is one of them: the Royal Palace of the Almudaina, a majestic testament to a remarkable chapter in the history of the Balearic Islands as part of Muslim al-Andalus, between 903 and 1229, when the forces of Jaime of Aragon conquered the islands. While the nearby cathedral was built on the site of a mosque to demonstrate the victory of the Christians, this royal palace (which had been built on the ruins of a Roman fortification) was kept intact for the use of Aragonese and later Spain's royal family (to this day it's still used for ceremonies and official receptions).
