Valencia by Kevrekidis Valencia by Kevrekidis
Valencia, Spain.
Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias - Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències

The “City of Arts and Sciences” is an entertainment - based cultural and architectural complex. It is made up of five main elements: the Hemisfèric (see image) (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 (oceanographic park, 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 Agora 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.

Near enough to actually see Concordia in person? It is amazing how they are recovering it. Indeed sad and such a waste, of life and the endless efforts of those who built it.....C.C.
