Not sure what to say.We didn't take the audio tour, and inside the "museum" there isn't a single silk exhibit,info table,anything! The building is impressive, but a few basic informations regarding history that took place there should be available for those who didn' take the audio tour.

Though not large La Lotja is the perfect example of the Valencia Golden Age. The inside interior is stunning and the entrance fee of 2 eur is well worth. The entrance is on the back side of the building but is well signposted.

Wonderful architecture in this world heritage site. The barleytwist pillars in the great hall are amazing as are the ceilings. Not an attraction that takes long to see but well worth it.

This has big vacant rooms, with wonderful ceilings. But that is about it. Very good value however. €2.

We are jubilado so it cost 1 euro each. A lovely building with a good video explaining in Spanish and English the background of the space. A short visit but don't just pass by it is definitely worth a look.

You can see and have photos, perhaps hundreds of photos ...The images are somehow placed in the past and stil alive... History in motion...

A most fascinating building in itself but it really comes to life with the English commentary device, a must to get the most out of your visit. The carved stone work could easily be overlooked without guidance. Especially stories re the 'bat' symbol of Valencia and 'circle of life' depiction, in stone, of maiden collecting poo from 2 guys crouching!

As a building it's beautiful and certainly has an unique and interesting history to it. The garden is really nice, with the orange trees and the fountains. It offers a nice audio guide to go with it. It offers, however, not much more. It's small and can be completed in less than an hour.
