La Lonja de la Seda, Valencia

4.3
A Gothic building that once housed the famous Valencian silk traders, La Lonja de la Seda is a UNESCO World Heritage Site notable for its architecture. which was used to display the region's growing prosperity rather than to honor religion, as with most other Gothic buildings. The structure is in almost perfect condition, with richly detailed ceilings, perfectly polished floors, and twisted columns. Before the attraction was constructed, between 1482 and 1548, an earlier trading post was used. Local trade grew so much that the present building was built to provide space for all the merchants.

  • This place is beautiful. It is not big but for the price it is worth to see it. If you like historical buildings than this place is a must see !
  • Nice place to visit. The 1500 architecture is amazing. The visit is very brief if not guided. Price €2
  • Recommended by a local friend as one of the most important buildings of Valencia. It's worth the €2 entrance fee. Video clip shown on the ground floor illustrates clearly the details of different parts of the building. Ceiling of the "Consolat de Mar" on the first floor is very impressive.
  • Very nice building loved the movie they made and where they explained it all. Would recommend visiting worth the 2 euro's
  • Beautiful place to visit. Didn't expect it for such a cheap entrance (2€). I got the audioguide in Spanish (+3€), but I don't think it is necessary, in the ground floor there is a video with the same explanation. The only room is not explained in the audioguide is the first floor one (upstairs), surprisingly beautiful!!

Where to stay in Valencia

The Valencia city center is hugged by a river bed-turned park that leads down to the City of Arts and Sciences and harbor area. Stay along the river to be no more than a pleasant stroll away from some of the main neighborhoods and attractions. The popular El Carmen neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city, is known for its bohemian atmosphere and historical architecture, making it a popular area for daytime tourism and lively nightlife. For a selection of newer hotels and well-known shops, you can opt to stay in the city's commercial district of Colon Street, only a short walk from the old center and well-connected by the metro. For a laid-back, sun-filled retreat, El Cabanyal is a quiet residential neighborhood near the city's main beach.
