Palacio Da Bolsa - Review

Palacio da Bolsa served as a stock exchange building in the 1800s. The Neoclassical style façade of the Palacio da Bolsa dates back to the 19th century. Even though the general structure of the palace was finished by 1850, ornate architectural details continued to be added till the early 20th century by different architects. It has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  • The ‘Nation’s Courtyard’ is the central courtyard of the palace and one of its main attractions. It has a large magnificent metallic dome lined with glass pieces and painted emblems of Portugal and nations linked to it commercially.
  • The Arab Room: is a favourite with many visitors. It is distinguished from the rest of the palace by its Moorish architecture. Other rooms such as the Tribunal Room, Gold Room and Assembly Room are a quintessential symbol of luxuriant artwork and interior decoration in Portugal. 
  • Another beautiful feature of the Palacio da Bolsa is the elaborate staircase leading to the upper sections of the palace.
  • The ceiling is painted over by António Ramalho’s magnificent frescoes.

The place is still serves as a favourite location to host State receptions.

Palacio Da Bolsa, Porto Reviews

  • One of the most visited sites in Porto, the Palacio da Bolsa is renowned for its exquisite neoclassical facade and ornate gilded Arabian Hall. This massive building located in the historic center of Porto. Once acted as the city's stock exchange. While you can admire the palace's exterior for free, the only way to get in is through a guide tour. The price is a little too high and not being able to take photos is discouraging. But the sheer splendor of the interior and learning the history behind the building is worth the price.

  • No information saying they only do a few tours in English on each day and you cannot self guide around. Tours were sold out for the day and only one available at 4pm next day and sadly we were leaving. Gutted as it is meant to be lovely and we don’t need a tour - nowhere else in Portugal has needed you to join a tour so we are very disappointed.

  • Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience. After reading reviews we specifically asked when booking the mandatory tour, in person, if there were any events going on so our tour experience would not be inhibited (for the tour and picture taking sake). We were reassured, many times, that there was no event taking place and all rooms would be open. During our tour there was an event taking place in basically the whole palace in which the staff said they had been setting up for numerous days. So not only was there the ciaos of an event being set up, but rooms were filled with staff and furniture, our tour was extremely rushed, and it was so hard to hear our ONE guide for our group of 30 people with the event. When I talked to the staff about my issue they seemed to care less. With a almost 20 euro entry fee for two it seemed more like a money making scam and was disappointing to say the least. I would say ask before hand, but that didn't seem to help.

  • Amazing. One of the most beautiful buildings I've ever visited. It took 40 years only to build it's stairs which were carved manually. Lots of handmade art inside of it. Worth taking the guided tour which is free and gives lots of information to tourists.

  • Amazing! The Arabian room is faab!!! Honestly, I felt like I was in a real fairy tale! That gold really sparkles! Looking forward to discovering more of the this beautiful city!!!
