Don't miss this fantastic building and try to be there at opening time to enjoy the silence. Impressive architecture and building construction as well as choice of material. Not very old, still in use and so much of greetings between people. The Arabic hall is really impressive!

The guide was very knowligable and it was a fabulous venue. On the down side is that you have to BOOK the time slot.

This is the old stock exchange palace run by the port guild. It is a former commercial exchange used for trading port wine. The building is fantastic and worth the trip. The main room walls have the seals of countries that were exchange members, including the US, Mexico and many other countries, including one that no longer exists. The rooms... More

It is an old and classic building still in use today. A must see for architecture, paintings and decorations. The arab room will blow your mind.

The cost is €8 per person. We managed to get booked onto the next English speaking tour. There was a 45 min wait so we went to visit another local church. The tour started promptly and the guide spoke very good English with some jokes thrown in to keep the mood light. I had expected the Arab room to be... More

This is a beautiful palace from the XIX century and was the home of the Porto stock market until its closure in the end of XX century. Nowadays a lot of important events still happen there. You cant miss the arab salon a real masterpiece. Still you can have a nice meal in the restaurant of the Bolsa inside the... More

I was able to use my student id for a discount, so I think I paid just 4 euros. You must take a guided tour of this building because it is still a building used for commercial purposes. The building has an interesting history and our tour guide did a nice job. The Arab Room is the highlight of the... More

While it is called a palacio it is not a palace, it is a commercial building. It is beautiful, the guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Because it is a guided visit you are given a time for the visit, depending on which language you want the visit in. The wood floors are amazing, also the plaster... More

The tour was about 30 minutes and we took the English only version. The history of the building was interesting and the architecture/decor was breathtaking. Worth touring if you are remotely interested in architecture or history.

You need to go on a guided tour if you want to look around. I went during the busy season and the next available English tour was in just over an hour. This tour is more focused on the architecture and interior design of the building rather than its function and stories about its history, so how much you will... More
