We used the audioguide and found this building to be fascinating and beautiful. If you like gargoyles, this building is an incredible photo op for you. The interior is an interesting and beautiful combination of styles and construction techniques

A fantastic historic building to visit, only 2 euros each. Fantastic architecture to see. Shame they don't give out a lot more information on things that happened there.

This goes together well with Mercado Central, but this one is also an Unesco monument. There are 6-7 spaces to visit and since there are not many exhibits, the architecture and the building decorations are the things to watch out for. If you know the history of the place and imagine how the silk trade happened, the charm is obviously... More

It's an ancient palace with amazing decorations. The main room is very big and the ceiling is interesting because in the past the room was used for silk commerce and it was blue with round decoration which represented bows and they're still visible today. The yard is really beautiful so I suggest you to have a walk there !

Love the amazing columns inside and the different gargoyles around the building that mean different things. Don't miss the room up the stairs.

This 15th Century former silk exchange building has some fascinating archetectural features and is UNESCO listed. As senior citizens it only cost 1 euro each! The guide is simple and the explanations poor but it is a feast for the eyes. I particularly enjoyed the Orange Garden which is the first thing to be seen after the ticket counter.

Been to Valencia many times before we actually went into the Silk Market; should have visited this attraction years ago. The internal architecture is stunning, especially the columns in the main room that served as the commodity exchange. If in Valencia do not fail to visit this building, it is just across the road from the indoor market so easy... More

Also known as 'La Llotja des Mercaders' (Commodity Exchange Building), this building housed a medieval equivalent of a stock exchange / bank, though there is not much information within the building about how this worked. Entry was free when we visited and if you ask at the desk they will give you a small introductory leaflet. The two principal rooms,... More

This magnificent building has been beautifully restored and with an admission charge of only 2 euros is a "must see". Located close to the cathedral, and central market these three form the core of things to see in the old city. Don't miss the first floor with an ornate carved timber ceiling.

Thank Antony B
