Valencia (Spain) - City of Arts and Sciences -

Valencia is the third city of Spain (about 1 million inhabitants).It's a big modern city, and this is the City of Arts and Sciences (by Santiago Calatrava) with the Imax, Opera, Museum of Science, gardens and the biggest aquarium of Europe. The city is the host of the 32nd America's Cup in 2007.

In summer 2007 you'll can see this building, called Agora. It's under construction. The crystal towers are proposed, and they are 308, 266 and 220 meters tall.

* those towers are proposed since 2004 and the costruction nowadays is difficult (valencian politics are waiting for private investments).

The city of arts and sciences looks like an expo. The globe also resembles Epcot in World Disney.

The Arts and Sciences City is a great work and the buidings are very nifty and the my favourite is the the Hemisphere is the more little of those building but i love that organic structure, looks like a great armadillo. But i don't like the most of the talls on the city although the new skyscrapers designed by Calatrava are quite pleasant as well.
