Photos of Valencia, Spain

UPDATE: Please see my new gallery of Spain photos here.

The Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències in Valencia, Spain, looks like a moonbase or some sci-fi vision. The architecture is stunning, and is surrounded by pools to reflect the buildings perfectly.

The Hemispheric looks like half an eye, the reflection completing the image. The Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía is an opera house with striking angles that make it look like it wears a motorcycle helmet under a mullet. There are similarities with the architecture of the Sydney Opera House. The Museu de les Ciències Príncipe Felipe is a science museum, famous for its interactive exhibits but perhaps more impressive on the outside. These three buildings are close together, and near to the Oceanographic, said to be Europe's largest aquarium, and L'Umbracle, an arched walkway.
