Turia Park

Gulliver’s Park in the Turia Riverbed

If you’re looking at the Turia Riverbed using a satellite program such as Google Earth, you might be surprised by the presence of a giant tied onto the ground with ropes. And zoom in closer… what are those little specks climbing all over him? Lilliputians?

The Palau de la Música

There’s more than one major concert venue in the Turia park. About a kilometer away from the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, Valencia’s futuristic egg-shaped opera house, you’ll find the Palau de la Música. Built in 1987, the Palau focuses on classical music. It’s prized for its acoustics, and attracts orchestras and famous musicians from around the world.
