  • Majestic Palace of the 18th century the city's business district 1000 antique filled with frescoes and period furniture typical of the culture of art bring the cost to visit the Palace is relatively high but worth it

  • The guided tour was about 30 mins, and the guide was well informed. The real treat is the amount of detail in the finishes and of course the Arab room which the leave till last. 
  • On a visit to the city of Porto, this is one stop forced-we were a group of a Portuguese company's popularity, which had the luck to have access to the Arab room, at that time stay gawking. The decoration of the place, the work of the ceilings is of a beauty that you is recorded for always

  • 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
