Late afternoon visit

A very nice building. The tour was well organised and in English. Tours are timed so best to think about planning your day in advance.

This is a very beautiful building owned and operated by the local Chamber of Commerce. We took (and recommended) a guided visit to earn the function and history of this great building.

We couldn't visit the place inside as it was fully booked until the next day but we had to leave the city. It's a pity but the place is probably woth seeing. So we could only contemplate the palace from outside.

It was a pleasure to visit this palace. Here you may find not just the story of the commerce but also a little bit of the story of the country. I just wished that we could see all of the rooms and even thought our visit was in spanish it was really a pleasure to be there. The last room... More

This palace has an interesting history and the rooms are very well kept. We decided to combine tickets for Sandeman and Palacio da Bolsa, and it was worth it. We do recommend a visit.

The Palacio da Bolsa is a stunning building and it was worth the visit to see the incredible artist work that has gone into the decoration of the interior (which took over 60 years to complete!). That being said, that admission price feels steep for what is a half an hour jaunt.

It is a nice bulding with an impressive decoration with luxurious, golden ceilings and all-it also can be interesting if there is guide to explain to you the history of the place but overall it is a bit boring and if toy don;t have much time to spend it not a must necessarily.

The ticket was expensive and the availability low, the group was packed and soetimes it was difficult to hear or follow the tour guide, but there are some pretty amazing rooms, especially the arabic one, so probably a not to be missed experience

We were learning about Portugal as we traveled. We had one day in Porto and we were all happy we made the effort to see this building.We might have missed it but our son the finance major wanted to see this. Fascinating insights to a people and culture who have survived a multitude of regime changes, a Stunning natural disaster,... More

You can only visit via a guided tour, but this certainly was well worth it. Our guide was a font of knowledge on the building, Portuguese history and culture.
