We visited the silk exchange. It was beautiful and the courtyard was lovely and peaceful. The interior and exterior of the building was stunning.

Beautiful building from inside and outside. Would recommend to do the audio tour (or a normal tour with a guide ) to get information about the place and its history.

The site has a some beautiful architecture inside and out. If you stand close to the building next to the garden and look up, you will be able to see many interesting gargoyles staring at you. Admission is cheap.

Very interesting - worth the entrance fees - great gargoyles inside and out. Couple this with a trip to the food market.

To my opinion this beautifull building is slightly overrated in its references , from architectual point of view it is well preserved but the inside doesnot offer great surprises anymore > empty

Entrance is free on Sunday (the audioguide costs a couple of euros still, if you get that) and I believe ours are 9 to 3.
