“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” – Henry David Thoreau, Walden or Life in the Woods
* Gerês, Portugal
A city inside the city of Valencia, in the south of Spain, where you are invited to enter the Spanish architect Calatrava’s vision of the future, inspired by animal skeletons. It has six elements: the Hemisféric, the Science Museum, the Oceanografic (Europe’s largest aquarium), the Palau de les Arts, the Umbracle and the Ágora. These different buildings offer you science, technology, nature and art. If you love photography you will feel inspired! It is well worth an evening visit as well, don’t miss it!
