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!

This bridge is part of the city of arts complex. It is a fine example of modern architecture. It is a good photo opportunity as well.

The architecture is really nice but is really damaged by time and lack of maintenance, forget about those nice pics you saw in the internet, if they are recent, they were probably taken by night. And about the content, well fairly empty places, not much to do. If you are in Valencia, go to the beach, city center, eat paella,... More

The Assut de l'Or bridge is a great place to take photos of the City of Arts and Sciences and is one of Calatrava's futuristic additions to Valencia. If you come here in late January/February 2014, they are supposed to be filming Tomorrowland starring George Clooney, so who knows who you might meet! It's well worth looking at all of... More

We did not have a lot of time on hand to visit the City of Arts and Sciences complex and check out the Assut de l'Or Bridge bridge in detail. The Puente de Calatrava and the area around is the best place to take pictures. The area around is very different from the rest of the city as far as... More

Look, it's just a bridge by an adored architect....Could the city really afford the expense that was required for this and the city of arts and sciences?
