As the sun is setting in Valencia the City of Arts and Sciences (Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències) becomes extraordinary. Designed by the Valencian architect Calatrava, El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía in the back and L'Hemisfèric in the front are reflected in the motionless water, flanked by the sculpture of a face.
At the back of the Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe the reflection of the structure in the water creates an eye like image. Although in a picture it is hard to see the dimension, the glimps of the person on the right gives you an pretty good idea of how huge it is.
The eye is deceived as it seems that the Assut de l'Or bridge (Dam of the Gold bridge) is reflected by the water underneath it. Truth is the water is only in front of it, underneath the bridge the pavement leads you to the Agora, that can been seen in the background.
Rear entrance of Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe. This museum is an interactive science museum. The slogan of the museum is “it is forbidden not to touch, not to feel and not to think ”, because they would like you to get acquainted with new technology and the human body in an interactive way. The water in front of the museum makes for a great reflection.
