a must for architect

They sure spent a hell of money to make Valencia a highlight of architecture. And the city got about bankrupt thanks to that. Still, it is a stunning view.

The only thing better than saying the name "Santiago Calatrava" is seeing his stunning architecture. I fell in love with his designs first in Valencia and then visit them every time I visit Spain.

The area in general is fantastic. Lots to do, great signs to be seen. It's a lovely place to walk at night, very picturesque!

Actually, the name of this bridge is Puente de la Exposicion and it was constructed in early nineties as one of the first Calatrava’s works. This elegant construction is amazing in its simplicity. Do not mixed it with works in the City of Arts and Sciences.

We loved this complex. If you can, stay during sunset as the way the suns rays dance on the buildings is really something. Add their back-lighting and it is an architectural wonder. They have an excellent Imax and a must-see museum. The aquarium is ok- only go if the kids really want to and you can't redirect them. There is... More

The Puente de Calatrava is a bridge that Santiago Calatrava built. However the photo displayed here is not the bridge that Calatrava designed. The address is Calle de la Justicia. I stayed in the Hotel Westin Valencia and crossed the bridge every day.

It was a strong impression from the city of Valencia. It was very informative and exciting. There was a sense of the future. Calatrava is my favorite architect. He made a new Valencia.

After seeing the Guillemins train station in Liège, I looked forward to explore " the world of Calatrava " and I found it in Valencia. My mouth felt open when I arrived at the spot: OVERWELMING!

Gracefully,slender,white,a little more beautiful than many other but all in all it's just another bridge.Anyway,it worth to get there as long as it's a good place to take beautiful photos of City of Arts and Sciences.
