In all of Portugal and Spain, beautiful things come by pretty rarely. The top sight that came in my is the Alhrambra, in Granada, and then the Monastery of Jerónimos in Belem. The Stock Exchange Palace is one of the places on that list. Don't...More

This building is not only famous for its history but also the construction of the various rooms. Front the plaster painted to look like wood to the Moorish revival room. Definitely take a tour. You will not be disappointed!

Very worthwhile seeing but understand that you will likely need a reservation for a tour later in the day you want to go there.

This used to be a palace used for commerce and other business dealings. The architecture is really beautiful and the tour guides really help understand what each room was used for. The ballroom is absolutely fantastic and a must-see in Porto.

This palace, in addition to classic offices, actually has at least three halls, one of which is truly astonishing. Made according to the arab architecture, this fantastic salon justifies itself visiting the site.
