La Lonja de la Seda is right in the middle of the Old City and is right across from the Central Market in the Plaza del Mercado. We visited on a Sunday when entrance is free. It is a marvelous example of the old style.

For just 2€ you can explore this beautiful old building. Bit difficult to find as entrance is round the back, but if you can find central market you are very close.

Very impressive small building with a lot of history. Well worth the small entrance fee. Lovely garden oasis away from the heat.

Another amazing architectural site. Valencia must have been very rich to have built all these buildings. The twisted columns in the main hall are incredible.
