Palácio da Bolsa, Porto: 10 reviews and 11 photos

  Palácio da Bolsa
by vichatherly
 
 

The construction of the Stock Market Palace, headquarters of the Porto Commercial Association, began in 1842 where the old S. Francisco convent used to stand.

The architect Joaquim da Costa Lima is the author of the plan. The hall that makes way to the Nations patio is covered by a glazed metallic structure. Inside the Palace, the “Arab Room”, inspired by the Alhambra Palace is worthy of notice, as well sculptures by Soares dos Reis and Teixeira Lopes
