Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias

28th August 2005
 
The City of Arts & Sciences on the outskirts of the down town area in Valencia is a jaw droppingly amazing (add your own superlatives here) place to see.  Designed by Santiago Calatrava (also an Valencian), it is made up of five distinct areas built on the dry river bed of the now diverted Turia river.  These "cities" are:
 
 Palau De Les Arts (Opera house and performing arts centre which was still under construction)
 L'Hemisferic (Imax Cinema, Planetarium and Laserium)
 L'Umbracle (Walkway and garden)
Museu de Les Ciencies Principe Felipe (Science museum)
L'Oceanografic (Open air oceanographic park)
 
Just by itself it's well worth the trip to Spain, let alone Valencia.  Trying to capture the scale of it all is difficult and I try my best here, but it's something you just have to see for yourself.
