Visit this monumental medievalp market place to see some of the most remarkable capital carved with grotesques in Spain. The high ceilings and columns in the main market area are extraordinary.

The building is spectacular, but if you are not on a guided tour there is limited information if you are not able to read Spanish. Free with the Valencia Tourist Card, so if you have time, pop in for a few minutes.

This amazing old building dates from the 14th /15th century. Was built as a commercial centre for trading in the valencia area. It was a silk based place at first and evolved into an important trading base over the years.

I would recommend visiting this place after lunch (e.g. lunch in the market area which is a few meters away), for a peaceful walk in the garden and inside this beautiful building. Great place

A very short tour and reasonably priced for what you get/see. Worth a visit if passing by for the giant hall, alone.

Entrance is free on Sunday (the audioguide costs a couple of euros still, if you get that) and I believe ours are 9 to 3.
