I went to Valencia not really knowing anything about the city. I was staying with a few friends that had been living there for a while and we were just sort of hanging out. I was doing the touristy things in the city while they were at school and they were recommending stuff for me to do but one thing they didn’t tell me about and that I had never heard about was the City Of Arts and Sciences or Ciutat de les Arts I les Ciencies as it is called in Spanish.
My arrival was completely coincidental though. I went out with my friends to party and this was the spot. When I walked outside for the first time I was completely blown away and I kept asking where we were and why no one had said anything to me about this place sooner.
I was actually like stepping into star wars or some other sci-fi scene that I never expected to see in real life. I took a short walk around before heading back to the party.
The next morning the first thing I did as soon as I woke up was return straight to the same area with my camera to walk around and explore everything properly.
I actually felt like I was on a giant movie set for Star Wars or Dune or Star Trek or something like that. I was incredible. The buildings are such incredible shapes and designs and they are so enormous that it was really hard to wrap my head around for quite a few hours. I love architecture though and when I come across something like this I tend to get a little carried away.
The rest of Valencia was beautiful, the beaches and the old town but for me The City Of Arts And Sciences was by far the highlight.
There was a lot more I could have written about the specifics here but I think the most complete thing you could possibly read will come from here.
