Note

La Lonja de la Seda de Valencia, founded in 1469 as an oil market, is a 15th century Gothic masterpiece that was later used as a trade hall and silk exchange.

The design by the architects Pedro Compte, Juan Yvarra, and Johan Corberawas was derived from a similar structure in Palma de Mallorca. It was not until 1498 that the crenellated tower and the Flamboyant Gothic trading hall were completed, and the whole complex was finished in 1533.

Nowadays the Llonja is listed as part pf the Unesco World Heritage Site.
