Built by Porto traders in the end of the 19th century, the Stock Exchange Palace is the testimony of the wealth of this social class in those days. It is situated near Ribeira quarter, Ferreira Borges Market and only 5 minutes away on foot from São Bento train station along Mouzinho da Silveira street. It is the headquarters of Porto Commercial Association. In the central façade, the Neoclassic balcony with four Doric columns with a portico on top deserves a special attention. On the top of the building, there is a battlement with a clock. In the interior, the décor is particularly sumptuous (stuccos, furniture, chandeliers, paintings). The most famous room is the Arab Room with its paintings, tiles and décor in revival taste.
