Personally, I do not consider this establishment worth visiting. There are a couple of rooms worth checking out, as curiosities. I do not recommend it.

Hi everyone, I'm trying to find out which days the Palacio da Bolsa is open, and what time it offers tours in English as of April 2016. Their website doesn't seem to give this information. Thanks!

Is it obligatory to take a guided tour of the Palacio da Bolsa? If a tour is required do they take 30 minutes, at what time do they start?

It is obligatory to take a guided tour. I went on a joint Spanish/French tour which was excellent.

Hi I've just booked a four day break to Porto between Christmas and New year. I have been googling all afternoon!! So far on my list are - Cais de Ribeira, Serralves Museum, Sao Francisco Church, Palacio da Bolsa, Cathedral, Clerigos Tower, Dom Luis Bridge. I don't think we would probably go to all of these, bur wondered if I have missed anything? We like a bit of culture and a few beers! Also any ideas for good and cheap(ish) vegetarian food places?
