Umbracle Gardens

This 4-acre (1.75 hectare) garden is housed within a beautiful structure of floating arches through which you can catch glimpses of the sky and the impressive buildings which form the City of Arts and Sciences.

Full of Mediterranean plants, trees and tropical plants, the garden is host to a number of temporary exhibitions of sculptures. The structure and garden provides a quiet, shaded space where you can enjoy a short stroll offering fantastic views of the river.

The Umbracle boasts a fashionable lounge/cocktail bar during the Summer months. The bar is open Thursday to Saturday from 11pm to 7.30am and is one of Valencia’s “places to be seen”. For further information: +34 671 668 000/607 659 605.
