I disagree strongly with the solution given on this question, and it seems to go directly against your own "quick lesson" if the answer is "era" -- the time frame is known and relevant because the palace was the home of a king with a specific reign, which would be known. Explícalo, por favor!

In this sentence the timeframe is not seen as relevant. It's just about a building being a palace in the past so we use era. The quiz gave that hint.
