An unextraordinary big building from the outside but inside this former stock market now wine trade association building is magnificent. Several rooms on the second floor each surpassing the previous leading to the final and magisterial Arabic Room. The visit is short but the rooms are a joy to look at and visit. It is well located near other major... More

We booked through one of the tourist offices so we'd know when there was a tour available in English. It was a large group so hard to hear the guide. Functions & events going on in the bldg. can affect the experience - but it's not a museum.

This was on our itinerary of the bus tour we took of Portugal and Spain. I did not know what to expect. It was listed as a visit to the Stock Exchange. When we arrived I found out that the building now houses the local Chamber of Commerce. The interior of the building is beautiful. Many rooms have beautiful design... More

My friend was convinced that this was nothing special from the outside but we were sent there by a Portuguese friend so signed up for the tour to see more of the building. It is still a working building so you aren't free to roam around but there are regular tours in several languages. The tour was fantastic as it... More

Porto is a beautiful city, partly because the hills offer such a beautiful view of a place so disheveled. If you stroll around Porto, you will find the market (done up) and if you found that, you might want to cross the square and visit this palace of commerce. It's beautiful, if decadent, and tours are good (the guides do... More

You ha e to visit this sight it's so cool. The visit requires a tour which hale s every 30 minutes and conducted in French and English. The palace is worth your time for its many hidden surprises

Wonderful tour with a guide who was so proud of where she worked. Well worth visiting for its history, it's wooden floors and the Alhambra influenced decor of the final oom visited.

I wouldn't rank this as a must see or anything like it. It is a building of no great historical interest and little architectural interest. The Arabic Room is very attractive no doubt but this is the final viewing in an otherwise boring tour. If it excites to see where the president of the association of commerce holds meetings, his...

Externally building is grand in keeping with all around but inside the rooms have special qualities and different personalities and styles. The guided tours are very good and take just under an hour. Normally they Cost 7€ (may 2015) but if you have lunch in the restruant ( which is excellent 15€ for set lunch with wine and coffee) you... More

One wouldn't know it from the exterior, but the interior has multiple rooms with very impressive and differing styles. One would go from one room to another, and be almost shocked by what one would see. One of the highlights of our 12 day trip in Portugal!
