Hello, dear readers!
I’d like to thank you all in advance for stopping by, and I hope that at least a few on my list of remarkable buildings pique your interest as they did mine.

Queen Sofia Palace of the Arts
Widely considered one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world, at 17 stories high Queen Sofia is also the tallest opera house and cultural center in the world. Designed by internationally known Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the sweeping mosaic roof is undeniably the most impressive part of this landmark located in Valencia City, Spain (birthplace of the architect.) In keeping with a nautical theme, the innovative upswept wing-like design allows spectators to watch rehearsals through glass panels from boat-like opera house “decks”.
Well, I am impressed! How about you? Have you been? Would you visit?
