Silk Exchange Spain

The Silk Exchange, or Lonja de la Seda, is the principal historic monument of the city of Valencia. it is considered to be one of the best examples of Gothic civil architecture in the entire Mediterranean. It was built in the 15th century, Valencia's golden age when the Kingdom of Valencia was at its economic and cultural peak.

The building was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996 proclaiming, "the site is of outstanding universal value as it is a wholly exceptional example of a secular building in late Gothic style, which dramatically illustrates the power and wealth of one of the great Mediterranean mercantile cities."

The contracts hall is lavishly designed with twisted columns supporting a vaulted ceiling.
