  • I suggest that all those who have described it as excellent learn a little about the black history of this bridge, a symbol of waste and things badly made in Valencia. What is spectacular? Yes, it is. But that compensates for the negative? I don't know...

  • Calatraba performed a futuristic city today, is magnificent walk, take the bridge, entering the Oceanographic Museum principe Felipe, or just explore it and enjoy a morning or afternoon in a place very different from usual on Spanish soil, characterized by its beautifully ancient cities.

  • Is in the city of science and the arts. There are magnificent monuments. The greatness and the strokes are impressive.
