Valencia: Oceanogràfic Entrance Ticket
- Valid: 1 day
Valencia's ethereal City of Arts and Sciences consists of eight gleaming white structures amidst a sunken park. Their uncoventional futuristic designs, created by famed Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, have made this City a celebrated treasure of Spain.
This planetarium was the first building to open in 1998, and its curious form reflects an opened eye. For an ultimate IMAX moment, watch a film on its 9,687-square-foot screen.
After admiring lush vegetation under soaring arches and strolling down the Art Promenade, gain hands-on knowledge about the universe at The Garden of Astronomy.
Named after Spain's Prince Felipe, who is now king, the center hosts seasonal exhibitions and an interactive look at science, technology and the environment.
Named after Spain's Queen Sofia in 2005, the avant-garde opera house comprises four cultural venues for music and theater. The Main Hall can seat up to 1,400 people.
You can either purchase tickets for the one place you'd like to visit (Hemisfèric €8, Oceanogràfic €27,90, Science Museum €8), or mix and match the sites with a packaged price.
