All reviews silk exchange main hall audio guide orange trees beautiful building gothic architecture silk market world heritage site central market upstairs room wooden ceiling english subtitles short video old building short visit worth a visit interesting history
The audio guide tour takes you around the outside as well as the inside. The gargoyles are quite interesting to say the least. The main hall with its soaring columns is stunning, as is the upper hall with the gilded ceiling. Very worthwhile.
It doesn’t look much from the street but once inside it’s a different story. A lovely little courtyard led us in to the trading hall with wonderful spiral columns and then upstairs where the carved wooden ceiling is just breath taking. Don’t miss it –...More
An extremely cheap UNESCO site (2€ entrance, extra 3€ for the worthwhile audioguide), it takes an hour to visit.
Some reviews mention it being empty; the highlight is the architecture of the building, a brilliant example of Valencian Gothic full of fun sculptures such as...More
We visited this building using the audio guide which I highly recommend as it tells you very interesting information which is not written down as you walk around .
You start off walking around the outside and it tells you some interesting facts about the...More
A stone's throw away from Mercato Central, worth visiting this UNESCO Heritage site. However paying for the audio guide is not really necessary as one gets details on a screen once inside the building itself.
Also known as La Llotja de Mercaders. For a small entry fee there are three beautiful sections to this building which is a little gem of architecture. My personal favourite is the Contracts Hall with its barley sugar columns, The tiled hall adjoining it is...More
Located opposite the central market this is a really lovely building. Flanked by churches and the market itself it is part of the beauty of the old town of Valencia. Really worth checking out and there are some lovely bars close by too.
La Lonja is a UNESCO world heritage site and for 2 euros and is well worth a visit. There is an Orange Garden - a walled court-yard, the main hall, Sala de Contratacion (The Contract Hall) which is a large lavishly decorated space supported by...More
I would see the beautiful older parts of the city first. The Mercado and the Silk Exchange are almost across the street from each other. The main square and Basilica are close and wandering the streets for an hour or more... More
I would see the beautiful older parts of the city first. The Mercado and the Silk Exchange are almost across the street from each other. The main square and Basilica are close and wandering the streets for an hour or more a delight. The hop on hop off bus will drive by the City of Arts and Sciences and give you a view of the amazing architecture without having to spend the day there. Be sure to take the correct route since there are two in the city. It is really worth it. With only one day I would not go to the Aquarium which has in fact a quite a large variety of sea life. By the way the pastry shops are wonderful. In fact the best of any place in Europe that we have found including France where we spent a month. Valencia is a treasure. Enjoy.
