A long cruise - Valencia, Spain - part 2
The City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia is one of the most amazing architectural group of structures that I have ever seen. Designed by Santiago Calatrava and Felix Candella, it was built on the end of the river Turia, which has been rerouted (previously flooding was horrible).
This is a view of L'Hemisferic and El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia on a wonderful Monday morning.
L'Hemisferic has an IMax theatre and planetarium. It was the first building completed, in 1998. It is said that the acoustics within the building are so fine that two people standing on opposite ends can engage in conversation without raising their voices.
El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia is the opera house and performing arts center. It has four large performance venues.
