Built in the 13th century to house the court of Jacques 1 of Mallorca, the palace was a monumental testament to the Mediaeval architecture of the South of France.
The building is the result of a happy marriage between Gothic architecture, made of openings and ogival vaults, and décor which is typically Mediterranean.
Opening onto an elegant interior courtyard, so-called "court of honour", the building is dominated by its keep which houses the low chapel and the high chapel, with a very beautiful gate in pink marble.
The palace housed the royal residence, as well as the whole court, both that of the king and that of the queen. The hall of honour used to be heated by three fireplaces.
