City of Arts and Sciences
Just east of Old Valencia lies the City of Arts and Sciences that looks like it could have wandered into a science fiction movie. The city was built in the early 21st century on an old riverbed on the site of the Túria River, which was replaced by a new river that had caused flood damage to the city. Visitors can enjoy a beautiful near-future world by visiting the opera house with its unique form, the science museum, the aquarium, or taking a leisurely stroll along the waterfront.
Valencia is the third largest city in Spain facing the Mediterranean Sea. Valencia has long flourished as a port city, and in addition to the numerous historical buildings that adorn the center of the city, it is blessed with a wealth of tourist resources, including the innovative design of the City of Arts and Sciences and the Falles. Known for its mild climate and rich produce, including oranges and rice, Valencia also offers a gourmet tour of its markets and restaurants.
