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.

  • For €8.50, you have a guided tour of 30 to 40 minutes by a french guide. Just book the time in french! You go through different rooms. These rooms are great for those who love the woodwork.

  • It's worth a visit if you have the time. There is a guided tour inside, very knowledgeable in the history of the place. Highly recommend it.  more »
  • We have seen the end of March the stock exchange Palace and were very impressed by the wonderful rooms of historical significance, which brought us close during the guided tour.

  • 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
