Tour Palacio da Bolsa, a 19th-century stock-market palace, and walk through the lavish rooms of the assembly and tribunal. Built by the Commercial Association in 1850, the building was improved upon and decorated until 1910. See the courtyard room, filled with arched doorways and covered by a large octagonal metallic and glass dome. You can explore quaint chambers that host allegorical paintings, rustic furniture, sculptures, and antique objects. Visit the most lavish room at the site, the Moorish Revival-styled reception hall, which once welcomed important personalities and leaders.

  • Attached to the Church of Sao Francisco, its Bolsa Palace is imposing. He faces the statue of Dom Henrique browser. It is open to visitors from 9: 00.

  • Interesting primarily for its symbolic value. Maybe a little expensive for half an hour guided tour. We had to make the visit in Portuguese because he had in Spanish was too late.

  • We were in the evening to a business lunch there (catering). Imposing building. Very large. There are also guided tours.

  • A beautiful building well worth a visit. A bit overpriced. I was unable to take good pictures of the best rooms, especially the Arab Room, as they were rented out for events. Great they can make money from events but you shouldn't have to pay so much when rooms are set up for a conference. Somewhat disappointing that they continue to make the money grab from tourism at the same time as they collect thousands for events and you get to take pictures of a guy setting up chairs for a conference. My advice to them: events or tours. Not compatible. We should have been told before we paid that some areas were closed or not suitable for photography.
  • Lovely Palace, with rich historical landmarks!But to visit inside the palace you will have to get a paid(8€) guided tour, which is offered in different languages, for only half an hour. Most attractive part of the Palace is the Arabic room.They also have cafe and washrooms for tourists inside the palace
  • A must to visit if you are in Porto. It's a beautiful building that has several rooms worth visiting. Focus in the Arabic hall. Lots of details and a must to see. In the proximity there is also Ribeira and s. Francis church
  • Was closed for a conference. Check opening before you go if this place is important to you. That said, what we could see through the doors and windows looked beautiful.
  • Let me put this way: it's wonderful, but it's too quick and a bit overpriced... BUT it's wonderful... worth a first visit to take your own conclusions.
