City of Arts and Sciences

Santiago Calatrava is Spain’s most famous architect and he is from none other than Valencia. It was he who designed the curious and inspiring City of Arts and Sciences. Located in the riverbed, this collection of buildings is home to an interactive science centre, the largest aquarium in Europe, a 3D imax cinema and an arts centre which plays host to both music and stage productions.

This new part of town is continuing to grow in popularity with both locals and tourists.
