Modern architecture which somehow fits in nicely with the rest of Valencia - probably because these inspiring buildings have been built on a dry river bed. There are several big high-tech buildings including an opera house, science museum and, the pick of the bunch for...More

Although slowly time tells on the conditions of the buildings the staff tries to keep good maintenance there. Changing exibitions, the sea world and a visit of the hemisphere are recommendable and makes it a highlight of a lazy day.

I would go with he science museum - the hemisphere is a bit like a Disney ride and if you suffer from any type of motion sickness this is not for you. The City of Arts is an amazing place.
