La Lonja was not a market but a stock market for traders. The markets themselves were held in open squares. The building was finished in 1551 and its promoter, the archbishop Hernando of Aragón, was a member of the royal family. On the upper part you can see several faces of prominent people of the time. The interior is a wide, bright space divided by three naves with pillars and vaults of the same height. On one wall is Carlos V's coat of arms. This building is considered one of the best examples of civil architecture from the Spanish Renaissance. It is currently used as an exhibition hall. Admission is free.
