Visitor's Guide: Valencia

Palau de la Música

Vanguard Architecture
  • Neighborhood: Pla de Reial
  • Category: Castles, Palaces & Historic Buildings

Description

The Palacio de la Musica is situated in the old river bed of the Turia. It was constructed in 1987 and is one of the banner buildings of modern Valencia, within what's known as the vanguard architecture movement in the city. One of its most distinguishing features is the glass enclosure that looks out on the gardens in the Turia. From here you can watch the fountains that have been designed to spout to the beat of the music heard from the Palau throughout the garden. The building was built specifically to promote culture and that's exactly what it has done. Concerts, operas, ballets, musicals, conferences, presentations, and all sorts of other educational activities have been and continue to be held inside and outside the building.
