The place was closed for renovations when we were there (September 21st). There was no estimated date for the end of renovations. The place seemed very pretty, it was a shame that we didn't get to go inside.

We visited on our last morning - free to go in but 50 cents for an English leaflet - well worth the 50 cents. Good if you are a keen photographer - the little bit of the building which you could see behind the exhibition walls looked beautiful also a shame to cover them up.

The construction is quite nice, but insider was an exposition not that impressive, seems to be a place for temporary presentations in the city

This was the place where basic products were traded (salt, sugar,...). It is now a place where they keep exhibitions. Outdoors it is very very nice sample of local architecture. Funny to see the painted busts of many people around the building (relevant people or sponsors at those times...). It is next to Pilar, La Seo, Ebro,... A place worthy... More

The interior space, with its high columns and beautiful ceiling is worth a visit. When we were there, we saw a very interesting photography exhibit.

We were expecting something similar to the La Lonja in Valencia but got quite a surprise to see the space being used for an temporary modern sculpture exhibition. Unlike the La Lonja in Valencia which is empty, the architecture is very similar, we could only view the stunning detail of the ceiling and half the height of the huge columns... More

If you are into architechure this is a must see for the ceiling. Wow. This space is used as an art gallery, and when we were there the exibition was free. Will allow photos of the ceiling without flash if you ask at the desk.

IMHO, it is a crying shame that this magnificent space has been divided up by white partitions to show exhibitions. The columns, the ceiling bosses, the space itself are wonderful and should have been left open. Valencia did a much! better job showing their La Lonja to best effect. Still, it's free. So use your imagination.

Lovely but unspectacular building in the main square. We went to a fantastic temporary art display on a Sunday when it is always free. Ask in the excellent tourist info offices in Zaragoza and they will give you a whole list of free stuff to see on Sundays.
