The City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia is a unique complex dedicated to scientific and cultural dissemination. It is made up of six major elements: the Hemisfèric (IMAX cinema and digital projections), the Umbracle (a landscaped garden and parking area), the Prince Felipe Museum of Sciences (an innovative centre for interactive science), the Oceanogràfic (the largest aquarium in Europe with over 500 marine species), the Reina Sofia Palace of Arts (dedicated to opera shows) and finally, the Agora, has equipped the complex with a multifunctional space.
The Oceanogràfic of the City of Arts and Sciences, designed by Félix Candela, is the biggest aquarium in Europe. It represents the main marine ecosystems of the planet and each building is connected to one of these aquatic environments; the Mediterranean, Wetlands, Temperate and Tropical Seas, Oceans, Antarctic, Arctic, Islands and the Red Sea., as well as the dolphinarium with 24 million litres of water and depth of 10.5 metres.
As you visit the different installations, you can get up close and personal with the behaviour and way of life of over 45,000 examples of the 500 different species they contain; dolphins, belugas, walruses, sea lions, seals, penguins, turtles, sharks, sting-rays, sawfish, jellyfish, starfish, sea urchins and all types of crustaceans, as well as the typical birds of the wetlands, such as those that inhabit the Valencia lagoon and the tropical mangroves.
Make the most of the chance to experience the City of Arts and Sciences, for even less in November.
