Really spectacular building well worth a visit. Tours of building are organised and last approx 45mins. Guide was very informative and knowledgeable and built in time to answer questions as she took us round the building. We felt tour was very good value for money

I could have spent all day admiring the intricate craftsmanship of the wooden and mosaic floors, stuccoed ceilings and walls of the Arab Room and the sculpted granite in this amazing building. The tour is interesting and about the right length for most people, I imagine. Well worth the entry fee.

You need to join the tour that is organized by the Palacio. Make sure you check the times of the tour before hand as they run every hour depending on the language of your choice (english vs portugese/french). The tour is necessary (but worth it) to see the interior of the Palacio. Photography is allowed!

Toured on our last day , but well worth the fee, it's such a great building , formerly the stock exchange , now public, but Chamber of Commerce , incredibly wonderful rooms, with parquetry floors, and the highlight is the Islamic room decoration, especially if there was a choir practice, which we encountered , wonderful

(1) You cannot visit this (Porto) Chamber of Commerce "Palácio da Bolsa" else than with a guided tour. (2) You MUST make reservations. You need to mail them and specify the number of people, the date and the hour you prefer (the website specifies the opening hours according to season), and they will confirm by mail (upon arrival, they do...

The City's old Stock Exchange doesn't sound like a good tourist destination, but not only is it a must-see sight, but should be right at the top of the list. It's located reasonably centrally and accessed up a flight of steps. You pay entry (it is privately run) and make your way round the central courtyard to the main stairs.... More

It is worth the entry fee to do a tour of this public building. The decorations in some of the rooms are exquisite & it is interesting to learn its history.

We went on the tour and only paid half price because we had our student ID. The rooms were stunning and explained very well by our guide. The last room, the Arabian room was absolutely gorgeous and tells of a time when Arabian art was trendy in Europe.
