“exquisite design”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Palacio da Bolsa organizes excursions in different languages which last about 30 minutes. Unfortunately, we came when one had just begun and had to wait (there’s a shop inside selling nice silver). But it was worth it: a bilingual guide proved to be very competent, friendly and ready to answer any questions. The Palace used to function as Stock Exchange, its interiors tell a lot about the history of economic relations of Portugal with other countries. In the glass domed Hall of Nations the guide explained which coats of arms were placed in the centre on each wall. The magnificent staircase and Gold Room look rather impressive, but the Arab Room makes you gasp. This is not the fact that 18 kilos of gold were used there, but elaborate Moorish design. Small wonder, that this room serves for reception of notable guests.

“worth a look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

was just down the road from our hotel. Doesnt look much from the outside but don't miss it. You have to wait for the next tour and it doesnt take long to get round it but it is well worth the look

Most interesting building, which you would not expect from the outside. Great, knowledgeable tour guide, well worth it. Some hidden gems.
