Overview

The old bed of the Turia river was converted into a series of very different gardens and the site of some of the most important buildings recently constructed in the city. This is where you will find the Palau de la Música concert hall and the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias a complex including a planetarium, museum and oceanography centre. The oldest bridges and walkways crossing the Turia date back from between the 14th and the 17th centuries; some are particularly noteworthy for their artistic value, such as the Puente del Mar or the Puente de Santiago Calatrava, also known as the Peineta (comb). Among all the different gardens within the old river bed, one of the most popular is the children's play area, called Gulliver, which holds a permanent exhibition of miniatures.
