City of Arts And Sciences
The building above is the Palacio de las Artes. It's covered in white ceramic tiles and I think they've been having a bit of a space shuttle experience because a lot of them are being replaced right now.
The blob in the middle (above) is called the Hemisferic. I don't actually know what goes on in there. In fact I don't really know what happens in any of these buildings because I didn't have time to explore inside any of them.
I love the way the shallow pools that surround all of the buildings cast a blue-green glow onto the white walls.
The structure at the rear of the picture above is called the Umbracle, and it exists solely to create a bit of shade for the trees and plants. Oh, and also to look gorgeous.
The building on the right, above, is the Museo de las Ciencias.
There is another section to the City of Art and Sciences devoted to Oceanography - more buildings in the same vein - but I didn't have time to get to them. Amazing stuff eh? Actually one of my reasons for wanting to move to Spain is that public services are excellent, and the authorities don't seem to have any qualms about spending money to get outstanding results - if this was in the UK it would be a collection of concrete-block warehouses with maybe a few scruffy lawns around it and miles and miles of car park.
