What It Is
The Barcelona Aquarium is one of the most impressive displays of diverse sea life in the word, apart from the ocean itself of course.
Inside you can find a total of 35 aquariums containing over 11,000 sea creatures from 450 species.
The highlight of a visit to the Barcelona Aquarium is taking a walk through their incredible Oceanarium.
The 80-metre-long, clear glass tunnel makes you feel as if you are walking inside the deep blue ocean with morays, giltheads, eels, ocean sunfish, sharks and even more swimming by your side and overhead.
Without taking up scuba diving this is the closest you'll ever get to these magnificent animals.
The aquarium is prepared for both local and international tourists and information plaques are displayed in at least 2 languages, including English.
If the kids aren't having enough fun already then stop by the on-site play area Planet Aqua or make a detour to see the penguins being fed.
