Barcelona Aquarium

Barcelona Aquarium

Barcelona Aquarium has the world’s most important Mediterranean section.
Each of the various Mediterranean marine communities are displayed in 14 tanks. Protected areas of our coastline are reproduced in detail and their most characteristic species can be closely observed… there’s even an underwater tunnel that gives you the feeling of being underwater with sharks, rays moonfish and other inhabitants of the deeps.
In the tropical area you can see habitats such as the Great Barrier Reef, the Red Sea, the Caribbean and a tank of “aggressive and poisonous” fish. All within strolling distance of the Rambla!
