Was used as a trade hall and silk exhange. The large spiralled colums in the hall represent palm trees, the courtyard with a lovely garden. Loved the 3D floor.

A beautiful building that is much more impressive inside than outside. Doesn't take long to go round but it's definitely worth the small entry fee for the garden alone.

While you may spend little more than half an hour here, you’ll be impressed by the large hall with its spiral columns and the ornately decorated ceiling in the upper hall. There’s also a small garden where you can rest in the shade.

Ancient historic building with a long history. Do not forget to visit and take the audio tour. The amount of details is large and must be seen. Also check the golden room. Very nice handwork.

This really is a very beautiful place with a small orange tree garden and a historic building, that is also a Unesco sight. Worth the visit, not very big so it is easy to check out during other daily activities in the area. I recommend!

Very busy when we were there in early afternoon so probably better to visit in the morning or evening. Worth seeing though as it's a very impressive building - we got in free with our Valencia card but it's only about €2 if you pay.

Only 2 euros for entry and three more for the audio guide which we shared. We highly recommend the audio guide as it provides a lot of detail. The self guided tour with audio guide was about an hour and we really enjoyed the building.
