Valencia, Ciudad de las Artes y Sciencias - SEPT. 2013 CONTEST - HONORABLE MENTION

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Ciudad de las artes y las ciencias is a complex of modern buildings designed and built by the architect Santago Calatrava, near Saler, a totaly modern area of Valencia. It consists of the Queen Sofia Museum, the hemisphere (a half-eye construction), the Museum of Prince Philip, the Oceanographic center (perhaps the largest in Europe), housed in 6 - 7 different buildings and L 'Umbracle, one construction, wich its corresponding exists in the Olympic center of Athens , work of the same architect. This complex is surrounded by pools and gardens, so it offers specially at night magnificent reflections. It is a minimalistic modern art architecture, and comes as a natural continuation of the great Spanish artists and architects of the last century.

Why the New Petition goes slowly?

The following message was posted during the previous petition fro saving Panoramio. It contains useful instructions how to spread the ptition form.

SAVING PANORAMIO: IS IT A PRIORITY ? (please read full text)

Everyone of us has his priorities in real life. First of all, I think, is our family, our health and our work. On our leisure time, even then, we have priorities. Personally I believe, that our priority now, must be TO SAVE PANORAMIO. We must mobilize all members. Posting and writing in every social media about, it was necessary at the beginning. But spending hours on them, discussing about or uploading relative photos, is good, but it isn’t effective. WE MUST SPREAD THE MESSAGE AND THE LINK OF PETITION FORM, INTO THE ORIGINAL SITE. There are members, they enter on Panoramio twice or 3 – 4 times a month. All these members we must find.


Anyone of us must spread the message:

1. Through popular photos generally or through each photographer popular photo.

2. Through our photos.

3. Through our favorite photographers.

4. Posting an announcement on the forums of our groups and find members of each group, not so active.

5. Through our replies on other members’ comments on our photos.

6. Through the contest winning photos.

7. By personal messages

Many members did all these actions, but we must try more. Our purpose must be not only to save Panoramio, but also we must prove that we have power. Even if the final decision belongs to Google.

I don’t want to discuss about my message now. That’s why, I shall not reply in any comment on Facebook, or Google+. I will continue, as it allows me my free time, only on Panoramio.

Kind regards,


P.S. You can find a form of message on photos of many Panoramio galleries.
