Silk Exchange (La Lonja de la Seda)
One of Valencia’s best-known landmarks, the Silk Exchange (La Lonja de la Seda) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a symbol of the city. Built in the 15th and 16th centuries as a hub for the city’s silk and commodities traders, the exchange is a marvel of Gothic architecture.

The Basics
Built by master architect Pere Compte, the landmark comprises four sections: the Trading Hall (Sala de Contratación), known for its soaring vaults; the Maritime Consulate (Consulado del Mar); the tower, once used as a prison for debtors; and the courtyard, filled with fragrant orange trees. The Silk Exchange is one of Valencia’s top attractions and typically features on the itineraries of walking and bike tours, and excursions focused on history and architecture. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Audio guides are available for a small additional fee, and provide more information about the building and its place in history.
  • Don’t forget to look up during your visit: both the Trading Hall and Maritime Tribunal feature ornate ceilings, and the landmark’s exterior features elaborate sculptures.
  • Admission to the Silk Exchange is charged at a small fee; children under 7 visit for free, while kids aged 7-12 receive half off admission.
How to Get There
The Silk Exchange is conveniently located in the heart of Valencia’s Old Town (Ciutat Vella). It’s roughly a 10-minute walk from Metrovalencia stations such as Xàtiva and Colón, which is served by 3, 5, and 9 lines, and Àngel Guimerà (served by the 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, and 9 lines). The landmark can also be reached by area buses, and by taxi, bike, or on foot.

When to Get There
The Silk Exchange is open to visitors daily. From Monday–Saturday, it’s open from morning until early evening; on Sundays and public holidays, it shutters in the early afternoon. Free entry to the landmark is offered on Sundays and public holidays.

Highlights of the Ciutat Vella
After your visit to La Lonja, explore Valencia’s Old Town—the atmospheric Ciutat Vella offers a host of must-see attractions. Venture to the nearby Silk Museum to learn more about the historical industry and then continue to Valencia Cathedral, known for its unusual mix of architectural styles. If you start feeling hungry after your visit, head to the Central Market: the grand, art nouveau market has a century-old history and host dozens of food stalls.

Practical Info

The Silk Exchange is open daily, with reduced hours on Sundays and holidays. It is centrally located, just opposite Valencia’s Mercado Central, and only steps away from a bus stop that serves several different lines.
