City of Arts & Sciences

The Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, or City of Arts and Sciences, is a cultural and architectural complex designed by Santiago Calatrava that has become the number one attraction in Valencia. Walking around and taking photos of the stunning buildings is a pleasure in itself, and that does not cost anything. However, it is well worth the entrance fee to explore the various exhibits inside.

Do & See

Many of Valencia’s main attractions can be found within its old quarter, a compact area around the Cathedral which is best explored on foot or by bike. Buy a Valencia Tourist Card of 24, 48 or 72 hours to get discounts at monuments and museums and free transport to reach some of the other key areas of the city.
