Discover La Bourse de la Soie Spain

The Llotja de la Seda (Silk Exchange), also known as the Lonja, is a 15th century Gothic monument. The building may look like a church, but there's nothing religious about it! Located opposite the Mercado Central, this civil building has housed the city's commodities exchange since the 15th century. It has been listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1996, notably thanks to its majestic Gothic and Mudejar-style main room and its high columns. The Lonja also has a charming orange tree garden and a second, Renaissance-style room with a remarkable carved wood ceiling.
