The City of Arts and Sciences (Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias) in Valencia is a sight to behold. One of the winners of a competition in Spain to find 12 of the ‘Treasures of Spain’, a visit to the city of Arts and Sciences should be compulsory for everyone who visits Valencia. A futuristic looking complex residing on a huge body of water, this series of impressive structures is home to a planetarium, a laserium, an aquarium, a science museum, and much more. Designed by revered architects Santiago Calatrava and Félix Candela, the main building ‘L’Hemisfèric’ adopts the appearance of a large eye, and the science museum a whale’s skeleton. Innovative design, combined with an investment in a run-down part of the city, led to this magnificent complex which is a must-visit attraction if you find yourself with a few hours to spare in Valencia. The number of things to do in the complex is countless, so whether you are traveling alone or with your family or friends, the City of Arts and Sciences is guaranteed to be a fun outing.
