This lovely gothic hall was once a major mercantile hotspot. So much so the UNESCO named it a world heritage site. It stands as a prominent reminder of the rich, secular heritage of a great commercial city. The architecture is unusual, featuring gargoyles, lovely stained glass windows, a beautiful central courtyard, twisted columns and coffered ceilings. Visit for the sheer atmosphere.

Nice romantic place in the center of Valencia. Went there on a public holiday so there was no entrance fee. In the middle there's a small garden with Orange trees. The old silk road building surrounding it has a lot of beautiful detail and overall a lot of Instagram opportunities. It's been quite crowded but nevertheless a must-visit when you're in Valencia.
This place is magical! When you go inside you feel like you are in that age. It is a lovely price too.
Closed for 2 days with no notice or signs, eventually told by a woman standing outside. Tried to come on our last day before heading to the airport, paid for tickets then told we couldn't take my (small, hand luggage sized) suitcase in. Partner had the same size carry bag with no issue. Asked if we could leave it somewhere and they said no, then suggested one of us stand and wait with it alone in the foyer while the other went in. Got a refund but absolutely bizarre way of doing things, plenty of space behind the counter.
Very pretty to see, though it is not really large. You do not spend a lot of time here generally, since there is not so much to do. The only background information you get is via a video, playing in a room, telling a bit more about the use and symbolic meaning of the building. Luckily this video had English subtitles.
Inexpensive €2 entry fee. Doesn't take long to visit and there is information in the small leaflet provided. Overall, nice to visit.
