Basically Gothic, it also contains Romanesque, Renaissance, Baroque and Neo-Classical elements"
"THE SILK EXCHANGE - LONJA DE LA SEDA - Built between 1482 and 1548, the UNESCO considered it as a World Heritage Site in 1996 since "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"
