And here I go again with my second post about Valencia. When in Valencia the most important, and probably one of the greatest attractions is The City of Arts and Science. This is something honestly out of this world, made me feel like something you would see at Disney world. An incredible architectural accomplishment. The City of Arts and Science or in Spanish :Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, is an entertainment-based cultural and architectural complex. This is the first touristic destination to be seen when visiting Valencia.
This masterpiece is work of the Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava. The buildings have become icons of the city. It is a scientific and cultural leisure complex which can be enjoyed with family or friends, covering around two kilometers of the former riverbed of the River Turia. The City of Arts and Science consist of several buildings as:
- The Hemisfèric
- Príncipe Felipe Science Museum
- Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía. Opera house
- The Umbracle
- The Ágora
- The Assut D’or Bridge
No trip to Valencia is complete without visiting the Oceanogràfic, Europe’s biggest aquarium. Don’t miss the exhibition taking place daily in the dolphinarium. This is something that has to be seen.
Be sure to plan your trip to the City of Arts and Sciences, because there is a lot to see…
