You need to book onto a tour to have a look around this place but it’s well worth it. Tours are done in all different languages, can be busy on the weekend so it’s worth booking in advance. The architecture inside is incredible, especially the...More

Our guide was excellent as we walked room to room while she shared history of Bolsa Palace and its function today in the lives of Porto residents. One room was spectacular in blues, silver and gold on all walls. Beautiful parquet floors with marquetry insets.

This beautiful palace is nicely decorated and still serves as the home for chamber of commerce. Especially the Arabic ballroom was extraordinary. Great guide to tell the stories and explain the history.

The Palacio was close to our apartment. We stopped by in the AM to see when the next tour was in English as they are all guided tours. We were greeted by Renalda at the ticket counter (sorry if I got her name spelled wrong)....More

This is one of those places where seniors like us get in half price (€5.50 each). We were disappointed to find when we arrived here that it was only possible to get in as part of a tour party, with the next English tour with...More
