The city of Valencia hosts one of the largest complexes for scientific and cultural dissemination in Europe. It is made up of amazing buildings such as the Hemisfèric or the Oceanogràfic and stands out for its avant-garde architecture, the work of the renowned Santiago Calatrava and Félix Candela.
The City of Arts and Sciences of Valencia is situated along almost two kilometers of the old Turia riverbed. It is made up of six major elements: the Hemisfèric (an IMAX cinema where digital projections can be seen), the Umbracle (a beautiful viewpoint with gardens), the Principe Felipe Science Museum (with a multitude of activities to interact with), the Oceanogràfic (the largest aquarium in Europe, with more than 500 marine species), the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía (dedicated to opera programming) and the Ágora (a multifunctional space where concerts and multiple activities are organized). The different centers that are part of this complex organize conferences, exhibitions, screenings, guided tours and workshops related to science, technology, nature and art, all designed to stimulate curiosity and learning in various types of public.
