Many of the rooms were beautiful, with carved wooden doors and furniture. It was the best thing we saw in Porto.

One can only take a guided tour through this building but it's worth it. Especially the arab room with its fantastic decorations is worth the visit. But the whole building also rovides more insight in the economic and colonial history of the town and the country.

It's interesting, but you can only go in with a guided tour, and the tour is slow, so I cannot recommend waiting a long time for a tour when there are so many wonderful things to see and do in Porto. Besides, this is modern history. I can't rank visiting this building full of plaster painted to look like its... More

This is the former Stock Exchange...with the grandeur of a palace. The stonework is amazing! We had an excellent guide who was very informative and this service is included in the ticket price. Prepare to be blown away by the Arabian room.

Such a great palace. Each room has a different and great design. It's small and you must join a tour. The tour was in Spanish and English. The tour guide was perfect. It's take approximately 40 mins. It's less crowded in morning and very crowded in the afternoon.

This is a building worth visiting. The guide we had(who spoke 5languages) was both informative and witty. The Arab room has a real wow factor. The tour is interesting even without this room. Still a working building for functions and not just a museum piece.

We had an excellent English speaking guide who explained the history and details of the place without unnecessary chatter. The staircase alone took several years to complete with all the decoration being carved by hand. The parquet flooring and the inlaid woodwork on tables and panels were examples of exquisite craftsmanship. The Arabian Room was breathtaking. I highly recommend a... More
