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.

  • Lovely building steeped in history. Orange trees in the central courtyard smelled heavenly. We didn't get a guide as 8 of us so just had a quick look around. Worth a stop on a city break and free too!!
  • Beautiful place and so tranquil. Free entrance, €2.25 audio guide that is worth taking as you understand a bit more about the building and its history. You only need half an hour or an hour if you want to listen to all of the audio. Definitely recommend to visit
  • A UNESCO World Heritage site, this monument is a feast for the eyes. Built by the city council in the late 15th century to house the commerce, the architecture and decorative stone work is filled with symbolism of religion, sin and wealth. The audio guide is highly recommended, highlighting the details and history of this impressive building.
  • Wow, wow, wow, wow and wow again. Not only is this place filled with historic, representations of a long gone civilisation, it is also reveals how the past impacts the present and future with its revival of ornate architecture and rich stonework. From winding staircases to huge noble tree like pillars and vast halls with intricately high decorative ceilings. Ceiling that tell a story of satire, humour and warnings. Excellent place to visit AND....guess what???? Its FREE!!!!
  • Entry was free, movies very well done and subtitled in English. Very nice visit. Well worth the time. Make sure to see all three floors, especially the upper two (stairs are in the courtyard).
