  • This is a bridge "Calatrava" characteristic and typical of the label ... Through a site of the city of Arts and Sciences in Valencia. The river Tauria is no longer there (admirably diverted), but the bridge allows the passage about the area below so well positioned for major events the city has hosted in recent years.

  • The Spaniards were drug users having achieved in a short time of the architectural structures of admirable workmanship. With the Expo and the America's Cup they did a miracle. Spectacular how they managed to divert the course of a river and cut a path to live in complete relaxation. Good!!!

  • It is a must-see. It is worth going around it, although it is more not to take good pictures and enjoy the spectacular views of the city of Arts and Sciences. Of course, all the works of Calatrava generates found opinions and in my case, what found me most shocking is that you divided the complex into two, preventing a complete and continuous view of the place.
