Valencia By Night

Highlights of Valencia. By night, it is spectacular. Silhouetted figures stride across the horizon, poised, it seems, to become villains in a James Bond extravaganza. - via @insidetravellab

Valencia’s Arts & Sciences Complex

Valencia. By the hand of fortune, the destiny of throwing rotten tomatoes and the hot rubber of Formula One, Valencia has enticed me here four times now and counting. Yet, however diverse my reasons for stopping by,  there’s always one place I make time to see: the City of Arts & Sciences, the Ciudad de las Artes y Las Ciencias.

It’s like seeing an old friend, if that friend were the architectural equivalent of George Clooney carrying a bottle of champagne and preparing to accept an Oscar. Its spine snakes through the Spanish heat, while the blue and glass curves shimmer in the water.

By night, it’s even more spectacular. Silhouetted figures stride across the horizon, poised, it seems, to become villains in a James Bond extravaganza.

Yet to my shame (and for all my familiarity with the place,) I realised that I’ve never posted photos of the Arts & Sciences complex here on Inside the Travel Lab. Which is a pity.

Not only because of the buildings, but also because of their name.

Exploring the art and science of unusual journeys. The city of arts and sciences.

It says it all, we’re meant to be.

Now if only that applied to George Clooney…
