Tour Palacio da Bolsa, a 19th-century stock-market palace, and walk through the lavish rooms of the assembly and tribunal. Built by the Commercial Association in 1850, the building was improved upon and decorated until 1910. See the courtyard room, filled with arched doorways and covered by a large octagonal metallic and glass dome. You can explore quaint chambers that host allegorical paintings, rustic furniture, sculptures, and antique objects. Visit the most lavish room at the site, the Moorish Revival-styled reception hall, which once welcomed important personalities and leaders.

Palacio da Bolsa Reviews
This beats every palace we've seen in Europe. Tickets required for the mandatory 30-minute guided tour. Each and every room is breathtaking and the final ballroom is beyond belief. Don't miss this. ... more »
Definitely a must-see on a visit to Porto. Some potential visitors might be dubious about a visit to a Stock Exchange being a must-see but this is a very unique building with an interesting history a... more »
A palace honoring commerce that must be visited on a guided tour. Built on the site of a former church building the structure shows off the best of the fine arts and crafts of the past. The unique Moorish style ballroom is astounding. Granite stairs lead to magnificent rooms upstairs with a view of the tiled entrance. Nice toilets available for visitors and a gift shop.
The palace is a lovely place, but all tourist services are in complete mess. You can order ticket on line, but you do not know which time slot you’re assigned too. If it is not suites you - it’s too late to change, you’ve been already charged. There is an option to pay 30€ fees for non-guided access listed on the wall behind the cash-desk, but you are not allowed to use it without clear explanation why. Be relaxed and enjoy it in a way the palace keepers understand the “enjoyment”. :)
