Palau dels Reis de Mallorca
Languedoc-Roussillon

The Palace of the Kings of Majorca is a fortified Palace in the Gothic style. It is organised around three courtyards 60 metres square. The first foremen on the site were Ramon Pau and especially Pons Descoyl, very active in Perpignan and the Baleares.

It has two chapels, one above the other: the lower is the Queen's Chapel, while the upper is Holy Cross with a pink marble door. Here we have together in the “Great Hall“, the seat of political power, the chapel and the royal residence. The position of the chapel in the heart the royal apartments, opposite the throne room, indicates the importance of the spiritual over the temporal.

The plan of the palace was inspired by those of Majorca, and the chapel is like that of the earlier Sainte-Chapelle in Paris.
