The Abstract Geometry of Valencia

Spain

Team Spain is with us at the moment, so blogging and bloggers are taking a back seat. All the same, I’m going to take a virtual trip to Valencia, which we’ve often visited after being with the family near Barcelona. This time though, as requested by Amanda for a Friendly Friday challenge (collaborating with Frank at Beach Walk Reflections). I’m focussing on just a few of the shapes I’ve seen there.

And where better to start than the futuristic Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències?

And quite nearby, in the Turia Gardens, you’ll find this bridge. which I highlighted recently. But this is a closer view.

Roof spaces: How about the Mercat de Colom? Or the so-very-different La Lonja – the old Silk Exchange?

And let’s finish off with something that may no longer be visible. Valencia’s big on street art, but I liked the bold geometry of this piece under construction.

This is scarcely a Tourist Info Guide to Valencia: but it’s a glimpse of some of the places worth hunting for in any visit there.

  1. Well, I think your guided version is great, Margaret! Love that futuristic centre of the arts and sciences, and the other architectural items aren’t to bad either

  2. Fabulous photos, Margaret, and I’m quite determined to get there some day. Sorry I’m a bit late here today to wish you a wonderful time with Team Spain. They’ll be happy to escape the heat for a while.

  4. Definitely some sights worth hunting out here if/when we go to Valencia. I especially love the look of the photo opps at the arts and sciences centre, and those gorgeous roofs!

  5. Great photos as always. Modern architecture can be absolutely stunning in the right place, but I am build a bridge to last kind of person. I love the photo of the bridge connecting people to the Turia Gardens. Beautiful. Enjoy your time with your family. Peace.
