Discover the City of Arts and Sciences

Science, nature and art in a complex devoted to scientific and cultural dissemination in Europe, placed in Valencia.

The City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia is a unique complex devoted to scientific and cultural dissemination which is made up of five main elements: the Hemisfèric (IMAX cinema and digital projections), the Umbracle (a landscaped vantage point and car park), the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum (an innovative centre of interactive science), the Oceanográfico (the largest aquarium in Europe with over 500 marine species) and the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía (which takes care of the operatic programme). The Ágora gives the complex a multifunctional space.

Along an axis of just under two kilometres that was formerly the bed of the River Turia, this complex promoted by the Generalitat Valenciana has striking architecture - designed by Santiago Calatrava and Félix Candela - and an endless capacity for entertaining and stimulating the minds of its visitors. In its various buildings they can get to know different aspects of science, technology, nature, and art.

The Oceanogràfic has had, since 2007, the largest and most up-to-date facilities in the Mediterranean. These were especially designed for the reception and recovery of turtles and dolphins. The Arca del Mar (Area for the Recuperation and Conservation of Marine Animals), can treat between 15 and 20 turtles at a time. This centre is noted for being the largest in Spain and one of the largest in Europe for attending to and rehabilitating these reptiles
