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.

La Lonja De La Seda Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful place to visit so don't skip this on a trip to Valencia. It is only a couple of Euro's for entry and well worth it to look at the beautiful ornate ceilings, masonry and sense of history. There is a lovely courtyard as well that provides shade and respite on a hot day. Located across from the Food Market is is easy to find and well served with lots of good restaurants and cafes close by.
Phenomenal piece of architecture. Well worth a quick visit, it was only €2 to get in. Only worth it if you are interested in architecture or retail. Commonly know as the silk exchange in english
Not only worth of a visit because the building, there is also a good historic review, plenty of relevant samples of clothing. Do not miss the old, semiautomatic looms with Babbage style punched programs. The giftshop is not the usual run-off-the-mill one from these kind of places. Even if small, some interesting fans and silk email gifts can be found.
Take an audio guide (€3 for one, €5 for two) and enjoy this monumental building with lots of hidden secrets. The thing I liked most were the detailed sculptures everywhere, the kind that you have to look at for a while before you see what's actually depicted. The main hall with the pillars is great too. Some reviews mention that it's fine to take just one audioguide for two persons, but I would recommend taking one each, as there's a lot of information.
The architectural and historical experience of visiting it is wonderful. Its my favourite place in the city. However, they do not accept cards for the payment of the tickets or audiiguides, only cash. I think it is important to improve this.
