"City of Arts and Sciences" Valencia Things to Do Tip by DanielF

Valencia Things to Do: 525 reviews and 1,179 photos


This is the pompous name that the authorities have given to this ambitious project that should complete the urbanisation of the old river bed. The city of Science and Arts could be considered as Valencia's reply to the Guggenheim phenomenon in Bilbao. The city tries to revitalise the tourism industry by building a futuristic complex of museums, auditorium, cinemas, aquarium... The works are not completely finished yet, but most of the attractions are already open.

The architecture of this complex is bright and stunning, and the project has resulted in an important development of the area, with many new appartment buildings, hotels and shopping center.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
