It looks more like a majestic church than a temple of commerce… and it smells of fish!
"Sa Lotja" is a Gothic masterpiece inside and out.
One of the island's great Gothic edifices, coming across more like a church than a house of commerce, the maritime exchange (Sa Lotja) on Passeig de Sagrera was finished in 1452, at a time of stylistic fusion, so it's very innovative within the Gothic style (it apparently made such an impression at the time that it was copied in Valencia). And it's been something of a symbol of the city ever since. Designed by famous sculptor Guillem Sagrera at the request of the Guild of Mariners, inside it's just as impressive as outside. Nowadays it hosts art exhibitions and is open to the public when something's on.
