“Simply Gorgeous, do not miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

A very nice hidden jewel, but luckily not so hidden now. You do feel history inside, beautiful crafted room, the ceiling is amazing and there are little things to surprise you in every corner. It certainly deservers a visit if you are in Valencia city.

“The winding pillars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

BY all means a beautiful dimensioned and crafted room. It gives a fine look back in time to when Valencia was the center af the silk trade.

“a wonderful building from the 1500 ´ s”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is one of the most appreciated monuments from this wonderful city.
In the middle ages this was a centre of commerce and it has managed to withstand time and war.
I think you can write a whole book about all aspects of this building, the wonderful central hall with its ceiling some 20 m. above the ground, supported by beautifully twisting columns, or the impressive ceiling, the great little details like the naughty little sculpturs on the top...you just have to come and see for yourself.

“Look Up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This piece of Architecture is well worth its world heritage status. Take a pair of binnoculars and look up at the intricately carved and adorned ceiling. Glad we stopped by.

“Admission charge”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

At some point they have introduced an admission charge which is shameful.. Unless they have opened up a whole new section you can see all you need from the door!
