The City of Arts and Sciences - Valencia, Spain Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias

The City of Arts and Sciences is a huge futuristic educational complex designed for Valencia by the famous Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, as a present to his home city. Calatrava's vision is that of the space age, inspired by animal skeletons. It is an impressive example of modern architecture. The "city" is made up of the following, usually known by their Valencian names: El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía Opera house and performing arts centre; L'Hemisfèric Imax Cinema, Planetarium and Laserium; L'Umbracle Walkway / Garden; El Museu de les Ciències Príncipe Felipe Science museum; L'Oceanogràfic Open-air oceanographic park.
