The modern city's landmark. The stunning City of Arts and Sciences, Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias. The Spanish building boom was at its height, a modest city could create a new museum island out of nowhere.

The area is almost lonely, only a few scattered tourists walk through the area. The scenery has something surreal in itself.

Hi Paderwan.

Nice pics. However, just a quick remark, Valencia is not part of Catalonia, it is part the Valencian Community, which is totally diferent to Catalonia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valencian_Community

Valencia and Catalonia share history, similar traditions and costume, as well as a quite similar language, but they are different regions in Spain.
