Port Vell harbour, is where you will find the wonderful Barcelona Aquarium – Europe’s most important recreational and educational marine centre, containing 6 million litres of water in which almost 11,000 organisms from 450 different species live in harmony.
Submerge yourself in a fantastic underwater kingdom full of bizarre and beautiful sea creatures. The unique Oceanarium features a transparent tunnel that’s more than 80 metres long, so you can walk among sharks, eels, and stingrays. There are also 14 aquariums representing the diverse marine communities of the Mediterranean and 7 aquariums dedicated to the tropical seas.
There is also a fabulous children’s area, an interactive space designed to raise children’s awareness of the marine world. It features over 50 interactivities in which children can touch, see, listen to, investigate and discover nature. It’s a truly amazing experience.
