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.

it's a v v beautiful attraction,awesome.The best thing is that this and another attraction-the oceanografic are in the same area,just adjacent to each other.this makes them the value for money sights though u have to buy seperate tickets for this.the whole structure is so modern that nothing can match it.total area is surrounded by water bodies which add beauty n give a soothing effect to the eyes.To complete the experience,see it at a time when the full lights r on.The view is incredible,out of the world..Miss it n repent whole life.Without buying the tickets also u can have the Outside view...

Walking around here felt like being on the film set for Star Trek! Totally unique and stunning architecture and lots to see as you walk around it. If you don't see anything else in Valencia, see this!

Relaxing 15-20 minute walk from the Alameda Metro stop through a beautiful, clean park area with bicycles for rent, rides for the kids, a Gulliver's Travels themed playground, trees and flowing waterways.

So pretty - and so unusual. I've never seen anything quite like it.

We were there during the mid-afternoon, but I would imagine it is breathtaking at night!

Visited the Oceanographic, which was really nice.

A very interactive experience for all ages and interests. Take a day trip whern in Valencia and enjoy whats on offer! Well done to the genius behind this wonderful attraction. Combine with Oceanographic for best value though.
