It's a very beautiful palace to visit. It's not very big and the guided visit doesn't take long (about 35 minutes). The rooms to be visited are spectacular. It's worthwhile. Don't miss it.

We visited Palacio da Bolsa and were very impressed with the architecture. The guided tour was well organised and good. We were told about the history and explained many interesting anecdotes by a enthusiastic tour guide in perfect English. This is a must see while in Porto.

Well preserved historic building with a wonderfully knowledgable guided tour. Great granite carvings and parquet floors. Very spacious and grand architecture. The Arabia room is not to be missed.tour

We tried to go late afternoon, to be told that there were no more English tours that afternoon. She then said - but you can book for tomorrow at 9am (too early for us), or 11am. So, we did, turned up the next day and the tour was excellent with the guide throwing in lots of bits of extra information... More

This was probably one of the highlights of our 4 day visit to Portugal. We had an exceptional guide who clearly explained everything we needed or wanted to know about it. Definitely worth a visit. We had a 4 day Porto card which enables you to enter lots of attractions free or in this case half price. You can spend... More

Price is e8.40 but HALF PRICE IF OVER 65 ! Tour lasts about 45 minutes. Its very beautiful and interesting as the guide explains about its... More

We decided to visit the Palace as it was mentioned in the guide book. You can only visit on guided tours. These are regular but there are different times for different languages. So unless you are multi lingual do check and book a time. The interior is beautiful but the crowning jewel is the Arabian Room which is even more... More
