  • Did a tour in Portuguese and I loved it. The House is beautiful and the story behind your construction is fantastic. The Arab Hall is the hottest of the Palace, as well as initial steps. I recommend visiting!

  • An amazing place. All rooms have different attractions. You can join a tour to see the Bolsa Palace. Tour takes around 40 mins yet it is not very informative. The structure of the tour is also problematic, you have one guide who speaks both portugese and english. Might be more interesting and seperated according to languages.
  • the mandatory guided visits are interesting. they are always in portuguese followed by another language - english, french or spanish. mine took around 35 minutes. i'd say that between the visited rooms and spaces only half of them are really impressive (mostly the main court and the arabic room).
  • Built in the 19th century in Neoclassical style by the Local trade association and not by a king. Pros: The Moorish Revival Arab Room. Cons: Lots and lots of crowds.
  • The Palácio da Bolsa is a historical building in Porto, Portugal. The palace was built in the 19th century by the city's Commercial Association. The moorish room is worth a visit.
  • The Arab room is a unique place that makes this worth it...although there is a lot more to be seen on an previous Porto stock exchange building. Mandatory to visit
