VALENCIA | City of Arts and Sciences

VALENCIA | City of Arts and Sciences | Santiago Calatrava



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 beautiful, no doubt. But what does this thread doing here? There is nothing under construction? This should be moved to another section.
