We had a lovely tour guide who spoke very good english. She did a good job answering questions and engaging the children. Building is pretty and worth a visit, but nothing spectacular. No pictures allowed inside and the ticket process is a bit strange. Show up early to secure a time in your language.

Although pictures are not allowed, it was wonderful to see all the
beautiful rooms and craftmanship that went into making this
stock exchange building.

I wasn't that interested in the subject matter of this palace, but I was so glad I went! There is so much beautiful craftsmanship in the building's details, floors, walls, ceilings and furnishings—I was speechless. And I enjoyed the little wine tasting in the building afterwards. The whole thing was a very pleasant experience that doesn't take too much time.

The mind boggles at the life of these aristocrats. It is interesting to tour this palace with a guide who can explain each room's significance as well as the historical characters and the parts they played in the events that occurred. You really do appreciate a lot more with a knowledgeable guide and you can ask questions that enhance the entire experience.

The idea of touring a stock exchange did not initially appeal to me. But our friends suggested it and I went along. I am so glad that I did. The tour was done in both English and Spanish. Our guide was very professional and knowledgeable. The exchange itself is amazing. The architecture was stunning. The fine woodwork using in many exotic woods was intricate and unique. The opulence of the ballroom was unlike anything we had seen elsewhere.
