Owner description: DISCOVER THE CIUTAT DE LES ARTS I LES CIÈNCIES. Science, nature and art in a complex devoted to scientific and cultural dissemination in Europe, placed in Valencia. The City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia is a unique complex devoted to scientific and cultural dissemination which is made up of five main elements: the Hemisfèric (IMAX cinema and digital projections), the Umbracle (a landscaped vantage point and car park), the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum (an innovative centre of interactive science), the Oceanográfico (the largest aquarium in Europe with over 500 marine species) and the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía (which takes care of the operatic programme). The Ágora gives the complex a multifunctional space.

We enjoyed the Oceanographic and the iMax but the Science bit of the site was fairly boring with many interactive exhibits not actually workin

Very modern architecture and impressive grounds. What used to be the river is now a beautiful garden area that leads to and surrounds this futuristic city. You could easily spend a couple of days here going through the museums, grounds and Aquarium park. Very big mall for shopping and eats very close by. Can't go wrong hanging out around here:-)

This amazing Science City, Valencia is known for, is even more stunning when you see it in real life! It's great! I just took a walk through that nice park which used to be a river and right at the end of that park I walked through the greatest architecture I#ve ever seen in real life. Stunning and definitely worth a visit.

My family and I were very impressed. We all are Santiago Calatrava's admirers but we weren't prepared for this...We enjoyed our visit very much. It was one of our favorite places in Valencia. We walked all over, took tons of wonderful pictures, sat to rest.....It was , by all means, unforgettable, it was very easy to get to and it turned out for us a whole day trip. Many times we talk about this trip and decided that in a few years we will be visiting Valencia again and specially the " city of Arts and Science"
