The title compound, [Pd2{P(C10H7)2(C10H6)}2Cl2]·2CH2Cl2, shows cyclo-metalation of one naphthalen-1-yl substituent of each of the phosphane ligands to the Pd dimer in a trans orientation; the complete dimer is generated by a centre of inversion. Two dichloro-methane solvent mol-ecules create C-H⋯Cl inter-actions with the metal complex, generating supermolecular layers in the ab plane. Additional C-H⋯π and π-π [centroid-centroid distances = 3.713 (3), 3.850 (4) and 3.926 (3) Å] inter-actions join these planes into a three-dimensional supermolecular network.
