La Lonja de la Seda, Valencia
Categories: Architectural Buildings, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

Maybe this is one of the most beautiful gothic construction in the world still standing. It was always a place for merchants, history and background of the building is related to trade of goods. Name of the building relates to the trade of silk, main hall of the building being the place where the negotiations were made. Unesco heritage sight that impresses the visitor.
