  • This bridge is next to the city of Arts and Sciences, is very nice. I imagine it should be awesome for lovers of architecture.

  • At the end of the Turia are a number of futuristic buildings designed by Calatrava. Even though you go nowhere inside. Worth it to walk around it, really you fall from one surprise to another. Valencia a city with a beautiful old centre, a nature park to cycling/walking and then this futuristic masterpiece. Super
