City of the Arts and Sciences

1) City of the Arts and Sciences (must see)

This location may very well become Spain’s top tourist attraction soon. It is among the newest building complexes in Valencia and has quite modern architecture. It very much looks space-age in nature.

The complex has some free attractions, as well as several that will cost some money. The location has a planetarium, a science museum, an aquarium, and an arts and science exhibit area. The overall complex covers more than seven kilometers, so plan on doing some walking to see everything.

The science museum portion is very hands-on, and all the exhibits are designed to engage audiences of all ages. Many people have mentioned that this building looks a bit like the bones of a fish. It is definitely an architectural phenomenon.

One of the other very popular pieces is the aquarium. It is currently the largest such structure in Europe. It currently houses more than 500 different kinds of aquatic life that has been gathered from every ocean in the world.

Why You Should Visit:
Fabulous architecture and gardens that you can spend hours exploring without even getting inside any of the buildings.
The sprawling complex consists of 7 structures, seamlessly interwoven with lush greenery, interesting artwork and beautiful shallow pools that you can dip your feet in to cool off.

Tip:
Budget at least 2 days to fully explore and appreciate everything the area has to offer, including the night views and amazing Valencian horchata from the stalls located throughout the complex.
Activities can cost anywhere from 5€ to €30.

Operation Hours:
Mon-Thu: 10am-6pm; Fri-Sun: 10am-7pm

Gulliver Park

Palau de la Musica

3) Palau de la Musica

The Music Hall is one of the newer additions to the city of Valencia, having been constructed in 1987. Like the City of Arts and Sciences, it is also a very modern structure, and represents a desire to show the world a more modern side to the city. It is also one of the most unique music halls you will ever visit.

Upon first notice, the hall looks like a giant greenhouse. The bubble style roof makes use of transparency to bring light into the facility. You will also note the large use of plants in the decor. But don’t let the nature theme fool you; the acoustics of this place are stunning. From a musical standpoint, the sound of the music hall is among the best in all of Spain.

It is located in a spot that is actually part of the old riverbed for the Turia River, and is an integral part of the gardens of Turia. A beautiful fountain is located in the front of the building, and it makes a nice opening “welcome” for what is to come.

The location sponsors concert hall type events, as well as musical and ballet. Several modern art exhibits are also on display here throughout the year.
