CONF 201 VIII.C

Inscription: La Lonja de la Seda de Valencia (Spain)

La Lonja de la Seda de Valencia

782

Spain

C (i) (iv)

The Committee decided to inscribe the nominated property on the basis of cultural criteria (i) and (iv), considering that 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.
