We were forced to visit the site in a group/tour - as you cannot purchase individual tickets which is silly and a big inconvenience. The venue is certainly over priced as it is only worth visiting for one room in particular which is the Arab...More

You are required to take a tour so MUST check to see what time your language will be touring. The fee is 9 euros, and you wouldn't want to pay more. There are some beautiful rooms and architecture.

Guided tours are mandatory. Buy your ticket here, get your time slot and go see Church São Francisco next door in the meantime. They do sell bundle tickets at Bolsa. The guided tour of Bolsa is short but very informative. Just enough information so nobody...More
