City of Arts and Sciences

City of Arts and Sciences

Valencia left the 20th century and marched into the Third Millennium as a leading city of the arts, architecture, science and commerce. In the 90s, work began to join the gardens situated on the riverbed of the old Turia river with the current site of The City of Arts and Sciences, alongside the Agora, designed by Valencia-born architect Santiago Calatrava.

Take a stroll through Europe's biggest cultural-leisure complex to feel the action in the Hemisfèric, submerse yourself in the Oceanogràfic, interact with science in the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum or admire the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía.

With its contemporary architecture, look through a glass passageway to see out onto the Turia Gardens. Its interior spaces are designed like a Stradivarius to ensure perfect pitch. As for its stages, they play host to some of the international music scene's most prestigious conductors and performers, such as Barenboin and Ainoha Arteta.

Designed by Santiago Calatrava and better-known as "la Peineta" (the decorative comb) owing to its distinctive curvature, this is one of Valencia's most iconic modern landmarks.

A majestic palace of modernista style at its purest, built in just 70 days in order to become the seat of the 1909 Regional Exposition, this is a gem you won't want to miss.

Cross through the Turia Gardens and the reason behind the name appears before your eyes in the multitude of flowers adorning the bridge, a different flower for every season.
