Lonely Planet review
The gorgeous, if weather-beaten, 15th-century sandstone Gothic Sa Llotja, opposite the waterfront, was built as a merchants’ stock exchange and is used for temporary exhibitions. It was closed for renovations at the time of writing.
Designed by Guillem Sagrera, it is the apogee of civilian Gothic building on the island and was completed in 1450. Inside, six slender, twisting columns lead to the lofty vaulted ceiling. In each corner of the building rises a fanciful octagonal tower. The flanks are marked with huge arches, fine tracery and monstrous-looking gargoyles leaning out overhead.
