Worth visiting, but audio guide essential Spend about an hour there. First part of tour is outside, so weather may be a factor.

The old silk market building is no longer in use as such. It is now a museum. It's interesting for a visit. The inner courtyard with all the orange trees is cute and the empty, pillared main hall is impressive.

Interesting to see as a UNESCO site. Used the Valencia 7 day pass for free entry (€2 otherwise). Great architecture and pleasant setting but nothing more. In and out in 15 mins

Me and some friends took a quick stop here during our day trip and it was very refreshing. It’s definitely a must see in the old town!

A very beautiful example of architecture and interesting designs throughout. The courtyard with orange trees is also lovely a peaceful. A nice spot for some relaxation and a look at some amazing interiors.

A brief but interesting visit to this beautifully restored Merchants Hall, now a UNESCO world heritage site.

This is another world heritage site not to be missed. The level of detail in the wooden ceiling on the top floor will leave you in awe. Yes, other aspects of La Lonja are also memorable, but this ceiling merits a visit on its own.

This UNESCO site was the center for merchants. The interior is quite striking with pillars and a carved ceiling. You are also not far from other sites like St. Nicholas Church or the Central Market.

Building consists of 3 impressive rooms. Admission is 2 euros per adult. Can purchase an audioguide but we didn't. It is located near the Central Market. It is also a short walk to St. Nicholas Church from here. One of the kind receptionists took us...More

Entrance is free on Sunday (the audioguide costs a couple of euros still, if you get that) and I believe ours are 9 to 3.
