This is definitely worthwhile but it's a bit inconvenient in that you need to take a tour and there are limited spaces. It would be much better if the schedule were online but when I looked it wasn't. The tours are available in several languages...More

This needs to be on your things to do list. It’s nearby other main attractions. It helps to have a guide but not a requirement. No longer a stock exchange. Numerous large rooms with differing uses and history. The last room is a real surprise...More

The palácio da Bolsa is the older bourse place, and shows a part of the industrial history of the city. Has an amazing Arabic room that deserves to be visited.

This is actually once the stock exchange and the name means the Palace of Bags! The architecture is stunning as is the interior decor. The so-called Arab Room is interesting for the Moorish influence including Arabic script. Well worth a visit.

Interesting palace of commerce with spectacular interior. Tour takes about an hour. We had to wait/head back to the hotel to come back for a tour in 3hours. Interesting enough if you’re wanting to see a lovely government building
