This is the former silk exchange built in the 15th century. You enter through the Orange Garden. The Contract Hall with its immense twisted columns must not be missed. The upper floor boasts a fabulous hand-carved ceiling. There is not much to see but what there is, is beautiful. The Lonja is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I'll certainly go... More

It is beautiful and historic but not a must see. It is quite close to the central Market and to the Cathedral and is worth the small detour to visit

We popped in here on a way from the Central Market and we're glad we did. There's not too much to see but the old silk trading hall, with its twisted columns, impressive floor and high ceilings is breathtaking as is the wooden ceiling in the adjoining room.

Very interesting building, where many years ago there was the 'silk auction place'. They also had a court for incorrect merchants. Do visit it.

We visited because we like to visit heritage sites. Lots of history happened in these walls. Definitely worth a visit. Take a closer look at the ornaments ;)

It is the most important monument of the city and a masterpiece of Gothic architectural style. The building was declared a UNESCO heritage.

This building looks normal and nice but you will find a lot of unusual things if you watch the details closely. The decoration all over the building signifies subjects of taboo like homosexuality in the past. It is funny enough that the building is so close to a church. I highly recommend visiting this building with a tourist guide!
