This place was only accessible by guided tour but fortunately we had an English only tour which was very refreshing and good.

A beautiful building that houses the stock exchange and chamber of commerce. Beautiful tiled floors. Was surprised to learn that a couple of the chambers were constructed with plaster made to look like wood! I especially liked the room decorated with Moorish elements-beautiful!

A glimpse inside another era. Beautiful architecture and stunning craftsmanship. Loved the art work. You may want to be flexible as tickets for specific times fill up quickly.

The brief tour is interesting. The English tour happens every hour and slots fill up fast. The bronze chandeliers, the beautiful parquet floors and the detail in the Arab room are all worth a look.

Nice building in the historic centre, 8,5euro the entrance with a brief guided tour. The arabic room has a wow factor. The rest very nice but nothing too special. Worth the visit
