Chronology in the City of Arts and Sciences


Promoted entirely by the Generalitat Valenciana, the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias complex has become an international flagship and symbol of its commitment to cultural tourism and the dynamic approach of the Comunidad Valenciana to the world. Along almost two kilometres of the old riverbed of the Turia and within the actual city of Valencia, its six major elements aim to bring culture to the people and encourage public participation in a unique architectural environment with free public access to large areas: Hemisfèric (Imax, Planetarium and Laser), the Science Museum, Umbracle (Promenade and Car Park), Oceanogràfic (Aquarium), the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía (Opera House) and the Agora.
