Photographer's Note

The Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències (Valencian), Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias (Spanish) or City of Arts and Sciences is an ensemble of five areas in the dry river bed of the now diverted River Turia in Valencia, Spain.

Designed by Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava and started in July 1996, it is an impressive example of modern architecture.

Here we can see The L'Hemisfèric (Imax Cinema, Planetarium and Laserium) and El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofa (Opera house and performing arts centre)behind.
