  • A must see in your sightseeing and visiting. It's a guided tour, and a good one, with several historical details regarding construction, politics and fun facts. The ballroom is gorgeous, and the now empty trade floor is amazing.
  • A palace honoring commerce that must be visited on a guided tour. Built on the site of a former church building the structure shows off the best of the fine arts and crafts of the past. The unique Moorish style ballroom is astounding. Granite stairs lead to magnificent rooms upstairs with a view of the tiled entrance. Nice toilets available for visitors and a gift shop.
