The City of Arts and Sciences is an ensemble of five areas in the dry riverbed of the now-diverted River Turia in Valencia, Spain. Designed by Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava in collaboration with Félix Candela, and started in July 1996, it is an impressive example of contemporary architecture. The "city" is made up of 5 buildings.

Location: Valencia, Spain
