它是罕见的巴伦西亚哥特式风格建筑,且被联合国教科文组织授予世界文化遗产的称号,所以这座美丽的建筑师是很值得一看的。它由Pere Compte设计建造于1483年,从那时就一直矗立于熙熙攘攘的德尔梅尔卡多广场中间。这里是由城里的商人出资建造的,之后这里就被作为他们的签约总部及海产贸易领事馆。这里常被用作商人的房屋或是丝绸市场,所以最后这座建筑被分为了三个部分:市场、一个内部花园以及一个有角楼的领事馆。 这座建筑确实很漂亮,而且我相信它一定有很多历史及相关信息,但是当你到那儿的时候是不会有什么旅游团可参与的,甚至不提供任何相关资料。我们对这座建筑有一定了解,因为在来巴伦西亚之前,我们就在网上查询过它的相关资料,并找到了上面说到的那些。进入这里是免费的,而且它周围还有很多有意思的地方:比如Mercado Central和Iglesia de los Santos Juanes。

Stumbled upon this after been at the Main market, on the day we went it was free entry. There was a film running with English subtitles giving you the history of this building which was a silk exchange. The pillars and the ceilings were amazing.
I was very interested with this - a beautiful gothic building. A landmark building from the Golden Age of Valencia. Now they have an audio guided tour which answered all your unasked questions. I had never noted that the pillars merge into the ceiling with palm tree like branches. Now I know.
This was a beautiful building and the audio guide was fantastic in providing historical information about this place. It's easy to do in 2 hours tops and entry is free on Sundays so good time to go as less people about too.
Take the audio guide (2.5 € only !) and enjoy the visit of a superlative gothic building. The site is well maintained and extremely clean. There are lot of details to discover. Spend some time to look from outside as well.
We weren't intending on going here as I heard it was nice, but not nice enough to pay for. We ended up stumbling upon the entrance by accident on a rainy day, and it was Fallas special free entry!
