La Lonja De La Seda - Review
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, Valencia Reviews
If you're sightseeing in Valencia, make sure to visit La Lonja. A trip to La Lonja doesn't take long, won't cost you anything unless you get an audio tour and gives you a great look at a fantastic piece of Gothic style architecture. The main hall, Sala de Contratación, gives a real sense of how important and powerful the silk trade was in 16th century Valencia. Be sure to visit the upstairs room with the incredible ceiling. You would be hard pushed to find a ceiling quite as decorative as this one.
Beautiful building probably worth employing a guide, but it opens at 10:00 am and not 9:30 am as stated in some places.
With tinted glasses and rather simple looking architecture, the building seems quite mysterious looking from the outside, but while the large hall and meeting room are definitely sight to see, don't expect too much as there isn't much more to it. Can be walked through in 15 minutes with moderate pace, but take the time, sit down and check out the ceilings because they're quite beautiful. Fortunately the ticket is quite cheap, too.
After jim thomson in bangkok couldn t miss silk trade museum of valencia...
Fantastic medieval Hall. Go early before flocks of tourists make visiting too crowded. Cheap to get in and even cheaper if you are young person with a student id. Rooms are lovely and cool in warm summer months too. Toilets are free and very keen.
