A Photo Essay

Valencia Day Architecture 4

L’Hemisferic and El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia buildings in The City of Arts and Science.

 

The City of Arts and Science in Valencia, Spain is sometimes overlooked by visitors to the region.  But to miss this location would be a mistake.  Previously I’ve written about the area and shared a number of daytime photos of the dynamic architecture that make the City of Arts and Science such a noteworthy site to visit for travelers and especially for photographers (Click here for Previous City of Arts and Science Article.)

If you do spend part of a day visiting the City of Arts and Science be sure to consider a return at night.  The spectacular structures with their unique architecture are illuminated in a striking manner.   Photographers – bring your tripods and enjoy yourselves.

Valencia night 3

 

Looking somewhat like a Spanish incarnation of The Starship Enterprise, the El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia has an otherworldly quality when viewed against the darkening night sky.
