 -   CaixaForum València exceeds 100,000 visitors a month after its inauguration

In the last few days, CaixaForum València has exceeded the figure of 100,000 visitors since it opened its doors to the public on 22 June. Specifically, 121,515 people have already visited the new centre of the cultural network of the "la Caixa" Foundation, which represents an average of more than 3,500 people a day one month after its opening.

Located in the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, CaixaForum València has received great support from the Valencian public since its inauguration, who did not want to miss the opportunity to visit the most unique centre in the CaixaForum network of centres, as well as the centre's inaugural programme, with first-class exhibitions.

The exhibition "Pharaoh. King of Egypt", in collaboration with the British Museum, received 43,902 visitors, while "Horizon and limit. Visions of Landscape", based on the collections of the "la Caixa" Foundation Contemporary Art Collection, was visited by 40,364 people.

Thus, in just over a month and thanks to the support of the Generalitat Valenciana, CaixaForum has surpassed one of its first objectives, to attract the public and begin to become part of the cultural, social and civic life of Valencia, as shown by initiatives such as the Summer Nights programme.

CaixaForum València is the most unique of the "la Caixa" Foundation's network of cultural centres in Spain. Designed by the architect Enric Ruiz-Geli, a professor at Virginia Tech, it has nearly 10,000 square metres dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge, two exhibition halls, an auditorium with capacity for 300 people, a bookshop and a family and educational space.
