The Aquarium of Barcelona is a perfect place to bring the whole family when visiting the city, where children can discover all the different species that live in the Mediterranean waters, and learn about the region without even realizing it. That’s because the Aquarium is home to over 11,000 species of fish and 450 species of sea creatures. Receiving 1.5 million visitors annually, this space is the fourth-most popular attraction in the city, coming in after the Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, and the FC Barcelona Museum.
The Aquarium is comprised of three different spaces: Mediterranean aquariums, displaying the sea life of the region, tropical aquariums, with exotic, brightly-colored species, and the Oceanarium, larger than the aquarium with a 262-foot glass tunnel offering amazing views of ocean life, including sharks.
One of the most singular experiences to be had at the Barcelona Aquarium is diving into the shark tank itself. It’s an entertaining and fun activity for children and adults alike, and even makes it possible to swim beside the sharks into a four million-liter water tank to observe sharks and other sea creatures from up close.
Not one of the really big Aquariums but a nice one to visit and the surrounding area is very good to visit also.
Fantastic visit at the aquarium for the kids. The tunnel is an attraction not to be missed;
The play area at the end is also very nice for them.
