magnifique, superbe endroit où l'on peut faire du petit bateau, du vélo, du cuistax, se promener, profiter d'une terrasse, se promener dans le parc,...
le plus simple pour le parking est de se rendre au centre commercial El Saler qui se situe juste en face

Quelle architecture
Mar. 2020
L’ensemble se compose de l’opéra, du cinéma hémisphérique (IMAX), du musée des sciences, de l’agora et, un peu en retrait, de l’aquarium. Cet ensemble architectural est renommé pour son audace et ses plans d’eau dans lesquels il se reflète.

Les bâtiments sont en béton blanc et présentent des lignes épurées et graphiques.

L’opéra de Valence, palais des arts, présente une forme quasi sphérique surmontée d’un espèce d’éperon courbé... peut-être la nageoire dorsale...

Nous nous rendons à l’entrée et demandons à un gardien où nous pouvons acheter des billets pour visiter. À notre grande surprise, il nous laisse passer alors qu’il y a un ruban qui interdit l’accès. Plus loin, sur le pallier, une porte ouverte nous donne accès au hall puis on trouve une autre porte et nous voici dans la salle de spectacle. Nous sommes seuls et pouvons l’admirer sous tous les angles.

Au pied de la scène, nous avons une belle perspective sur les 6 ou 7 balcons, nous remontons dans l’allée et admirons la scène elle-même puis revenons pour jeter un coup-d’œil sur la fosse d’orchestre. Nous avons dû rester une dizaine de minutes seuls, sans aucune surveillance à admirer ce bel endroit avant de ressortir.

Vu d’un autre angle, le bâtiment ressemble à un grand poisson avec la gueule légèrement entrouverte. Nous traversons ensuite une allée, sous une arcade ajourée, ombragée bordée de palmiers à côté d’un bassin. En voilà un bâtiment curieux semblable à la forme d’un œil entrouvert. C’est l’emplacement du cinéma IMAX. Juste devant, on rencontre le musée des sciences. C’est surtout lui qui fait la renommée du site avec ses lignes modernes, voire futuristes.

Les bassins d’eau en magnifient le design et rende le site spectaculaire. Nous le traversons dans toute sa longueur puis faisons face à un grand bâtiment bleu, de forme plutôt ovoïde. C’est fermé et semble ne rien contenir, c’est un agora.

Dernière ce bâtiment, se trouve l’aquarium.

Feb. 2020 • Friends
Purtroppo qui è possibile ammirare solo gli edifici bellissimi e imponenti progettato da Calatrava. L'interno non vale la visita. L'emisferic non è nulla di sorprendente e la città arte e scienza non accoglie nulla che valga davvero la pena d'esser visitato. È sufficiente una passeggiata nei dintorni per ammirare il parco circostante.

Ciao Marco, non la conosco e non ho fatto nessuna visita con lei nella città delle Arti e delle Scienze, penso che lei abbia commesso un errore nel mettere la recensione qua. Sarebbe così gentile da rimuoverlo dal mio sito. Grazie in anticipo

Nos ha hecho la visita guiada por el oceanográfico y su servicio ha sido muy satisfactorio. Nos ha gustado mucho. Nos recomendó un restaurante para comer y hemos quedado muy contentos. La guía Angela es muy profesional, la recomendamos.
