“Palácio da Bolsa”, the old Stock Exchange of Porto is the location we choose for the Reception. It was built to impress and earn the credibility of European investors and so we hope to impress you as well when you stroll around establishment.

Built on the ruins of the cloisters of the St. Francis Convent, it houses to this day the commercial association of Porto and is intimately tied to the trade of Port Wine.  The big atrium displays around the ceiling all the countries Portugal had trading relations with. See for yourself if you can recognize them.

The mixture of architectural styles gives the ensemble an interesting flair and the Arab Room in particular intrigued many before.

How to get there

Meet at the Registration Desk of SIES2013 at 19:00 and we’ll make our way together to the venue in the city centre. We will take the Metro (using the Andante Cards provided in your SIES bag) and disembark at São Bento Metro Station (Tourist Map Ref: 3). From there we walk down Rua das Flores to Palácio da Bolsa.
