Valencia is a playground for those who love modern architecture. The City of Arts and Sciences (Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias) exceeded my high expectations. Santiago Calatrava, a native of Valencia, created an absolute masterpiece here.
The City of Arts and Sciences is a complex of futuristic buildings, including an opera house, planetarium, science museum, and aquarium. The stunning architecture of these buildings makes them a popular attraction for visitors worldwide.
Highlights of the Complex in Valencia
One of the most impressive sights in the complex is the Hemisfèric, a futuristic eye-shaped building that houses a planetarium and an IMAX cinema. The building’s architecture is truly unique, and I spent a lot of time capturing its details from different angles.
Another highlight of the City of Arts and Sciences is the Oceanogràfic, the largest aquarium in Europe. The aquarium is home to a diverse range of marine life, including dolphins, sharks, and sea turtles.
Overall, my evening at the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia was a photographer’s dream come true. The stunning architecture and unique design of the buildings made for some truly unforgettable photographs. I’m happy to share these photos with you finally and dream about returning to Spain soon. Valencia’s City of Arts and Sciences is a must-visit destination for anyone who loves modern architecture and wants to capture its beauty on camera.
