This historical building in Porto, Portugal is not a stock exchange nor is it a palace, even though it’s name translates to Stock Exchange Palace. It is a monument to Portuguese civic and commercial pride. It was built by the Commercial Association of Porto to highlight the skills of Porto’s tradesmen. Unfortunately, the day we visited, the Stock Exchange Palace wasn’t open for tours as preparations were on going for an event. We only got a glimpse of the craftsmanship the building displays.Visiting hours 0900-1830 from April to October, and 0900-1230, 1400-1730 from November to March.
