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.

  • Fantastic medieval Hall. Go early before flocks of tourists make visiting too crowded. Cheap to get in and even cheaper if you are young person with a student id. Rooms are lovely and cool in warm summer months too. Toilets are free and very keen.
  • An amazing place to visit. If you come to Valencia I would highly recommend seeing this place. Its very cheap to enter (about 2€) and well worth it. Great medieval architecture and impressive buildings.
  • Impressive building, nicely restored and tons of history. You only need an hour or so here but it's well worth a visit when in Valencia. We went on Sunday so it was free to enter. I'm not sure if I'd have paid to visit but glad I went. Take in the short 10 minute video upon entering to get a better understanding of the history and restoration works.
  • Fantastic gothic building. It used to be the place for silk trading. It deserves a visit around it and also it is interesting the interior. Sculpture details are absolutely amazing.
  • Great piece of architecture. Its definitely on the top things to see around Valencia. I got see it and hear about its history by going around with on of the free tours. Totally worth it! Lots of historical facts!
