Concierge.com's insider take:
Built between 1482 and 1498, this commodity exchange and silk market, now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, is one of the architectural wonders of Valencia. The elaborate Gothic tracery of the lofty ceiling is supported by tall stone columns that look like sticks of barley sugar. On the other side of a courtyard planted with orange trees, stairs lead up to the main hall of the Consolat del Mar, with its glorious ceiling of painted wood panels (hundreds of them) portraying scenes and characters from the Bible and classical mythology.
