Nice building, but really not much to see inside. If already in the area (and sure you'll walk in this area) it okay to take a walk inside. It will take not more than 10 minutes, the gargoyles look good and the columns are impressive....More

Beautifully restored old factory. It is a world heritage site. Not to miss. Nearby are places to buy silk items

Going inside of this Gothic style building is like going back in the past, where in the golden century the merchants were trying to make their best deals.

Really nice place for only 1 euro of ticket (we got a reduction because we are students, otherwise it is 2). The main hall is really impressive and beautiful and also the other smaller rooms are quite interesting.

This is a beautiful building, just behind central market; free entry & hand held equipment for audio descriptions available for €3 (€2 if you present Valencia tourist card). Also suggest worth seeing the museum of silk, 5 minute walk away, but be aware they close...More
