Porto and the North Sights



Palácio da Bolsa

Palácio da Bolsa Review

Porto's neoclassical former stock exchange takes up much of the site of the former Franciscan convent at the Igreja de São Francisco. Guided tours (every half hour) are the only way to see the interior of this masterpiece of 19th-century Portuguese architecture. The Arab-style ballroom, in particular, is one of the most admired chambers and was designed by civil engineer Gustavo Adolfo Gonçalves e Sousa.
