Welcome to the Stock Exchange Palace, a 19th century majestic building owned by the Porto Commercial Association and located in front of the Praça do Infante D. Henrique. 

The predominant style of the palace is the British Neoclassical, and Palladian style, present, especially, in the search for perfect symmetry in all the building’s volume while the interiors are known for their great artistic variety. Great names of late 19th and early 20th centuries Portuguese Arts collaborated in its decoration, as Marques da Silva, Soares dos Reis, Lopes Teixeira, António Ramalho, Henrique Medina, among others.

The highlight of this place is the Arabian Room – a beautiful gilded ballroom decorated in Moorish Revival style, an amazing combination of western and eastern influences which will take your breath away. This room was designed by the architect Gustavo Adolfo Gonçalves de Sousa, who had as inspiration the Alhambra Palace. Nowadays, the Arabian Room is used for music concerts.

Reviews

One of the most beautiful attractions in Porto
The Stock Exchange Palace is stunning. I loved visiting it. The entrance hall is already a spectacle with its skylight. Each room is more beautiful than the other. Book in advance, because in some opportunities there are events and the place is closed to the public. Only guided tours and times determined according to the language. The Arabian Salon is already worth the visit.

Bolsa Palace
It is worth choosing a guided tour. The spaces and the history of the institution are worth the wait in days of greater affluence. It is a remarkable building in downtown Porto, both for its architecture and decoration and for the good state of conservation and magnificence!
