Valencian born Santiago Calatrava is one of the current super stars of the international architectural scene. Right here in his hometown he build the magnificent complex CAC (1995-2010), including the highest opera worldwide, an IMAX cinema, sciences museum, and the biggest aquarium in Europe (Oceanografìc, architect Feliz Candela). The vast and mostly white buildings are situated in the former river bed (nowadays dry and a lush park), with the beautiful mediterran blue skies as their backdrop. On this guided tour you will learn about construction ideas and the incredibly achievements when it comes to statics, but also about flaws and failures. Your guide will take you on an immersive outside visit of all buildings. We can adopt this private tour to your requests, like an inside visit to the opera (public or private), a movie in the IMAX cinema Hemisferic or a visit to catch up with Nemo and Dory in the aquarium Oceanografìc. With our professional and well informed guides you will see the City of Arts and Sciences in new and exciting ways.
