If you are into architechure this is a must see for the ceiling. Wow. This space is used as an art gallery, and when we were there the exibition was free. Will allow photos of the ceiling without flash if you ask at the desk.

Lovely but unspectacular building in the main square. We went to a fantastic temporary art display on a Sunday when it is always free. Ask in the excellent tourist info offices in Zaragoza and they will give you a whole list of free stuff to see on Sundays.

The Lonja is a civil building that is located in the Plaza del Pilar and faces the Basilica of El Pilar. It was built between 1541 and 1551 to centralize agricultural trade. The architect was Juan de Sariñena and the person who ordered it built was Hernando de Aragon. The building is the best Renaissance building in Aragon and has a rectangular plan. It was constructed with brick. There are three stories and on the ground floor there are three large entrances topped with semicircular arches. The arches of the higher floors are smaller. The upper floor has medallions with busts. Inside the building one can find columns that support a Gothic star-ribbed vault. Today the building is used for exhibitions.

Although the Lonja is a big gallery with not much to see, although the building is historically rich, it usually houses excellent expositions. I was very impressed with a photo exhibition I was fortunate to see during my stay in Saragossa, but everybody I talked with said the Lonja always has great exhibitions.

C16th purpose built as a stock exchange, as I understand it. The fan vaulting is phenomenal, but viewing is obstructed by modern furniture for an unsympathetic art exhibition.

Fascinating exhibition of modern art and video graphics. The illuminated ceiling is breathtaking. Highly recommended.

We visited on our last morning - free to go in but 50 cents for an English leaflet - well worth the 50 cents. Good if you are a keen photographer - the little bit of the building which you could see behind the exhibition walls looked beautiful also a shame to cover them up.

We were expecting something similar to the La Lonja in Valencia but got quite a surprise to see the space being used for an temporary modern sculpture exhibition. Unlike the La Lonja in Valencia which is empty, the architecture is very similar, we could only view the stunning detail of the ceiling and half the height of the huge columns as the rest was covered up with the exhibition.

La Lonja was built between 1541 to 1551 as the town's marketplace and is a good example of Aragonese Renaissance architecture. It is located on Plaza del Pilar between Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Pilar and La Seo del Salvador. Entry is free and worthwhile as it is unique. Tues-Sat 1000-1400 and 1700-2100, Sun and public holidays 1000-1430.

IMHO, it is a crying shame that this magnificent space has been divided up by white partitions to show exhibitions. The columns, the ceiling bosses, the space itself are wonderful and should have been left open. Valencia did a much! better job showing their La Lonja to best effect. Still, it's free. So use your imagination.

so he building is great if you look up and see the ceiling and what you can of the walls. When we were there there was a photography exhibition on, we liked the first part which were evocative 1950s but then nada! Too much photo shot.
