The Aquarium in Barcelona

Mar 1, 2008
Barcelona hosts many different forms of entertainment ranging from museums and the IMAX to the famous football club, Barcelona F.C. One of the top attractions within Barcelona is L'Aquarium de Barcelona that is located at the Moll d'Espanya. This is an enthralling location that is popular among children and suitable for all the family. L'Aquarium brings the importance and love of the sea and its inhabitants to visitors.

Barcelona presents a marine leisure and education center that focuses on the Mediterranean Sea. This fascinating location boasts 35 tanks, 450 different species that total 11,000 animals, and an underwater tunnel that is 80 meters in length. This impressive center was opened in 1995 and has since been experienced by over 14 million visitors. This site is easily accessible and may be reached by bus, tourist bus or by using the underground.

L'Aquarium de Barcelona features an exhibit that includes a route consisting of 21 tanks that display various examples of aquatic life forms of the Mediterranean Sea. The exhibits include tropical tanks, mini aquariums and the oceanarium. An exciting element of L'Aquarium is Explora that allows visitors to explore three different areas of the Mediterranean. These sample areas are marsh lands of Delta del Ebro, beach and lagoon areas of the Costa Brava and the underwater kingdom of the cave in the Islas Medas. This site also includes special activities and contests especially for children. In addition, L'Aquarium hosts a special education center. Wednesdays that fall during the school year are considered as teachers' days at L'Aquarium and teachers are admitted free of charge on these particular days. This exciting place provides an interesting way to learn about different elements concerning sea life in a unique way.

Diving with Sharks. One of the captivating attractions at this location is the unusual opportunity of diving with sharks. L'Aquarium offers a special shark course that is intended for qualified divers only and provides an understanding of sharks that also enables a dive with the sharks.

When planning any vacation the traveler has to consider the budget carefully. Barcelona is not any different. As is the case with many other locations, hotel rooms are usually more expensive than rented accommodation. Visitors to Barcelona will discover that there are plenty of holiday rentals available in convenient locations for the top tourist sites. Whether travelers choose to stay in a rented apartment or in one of the many hotels, the city of Barcelona has many attractions to offer its visitors.

When in Barcelona or selecting the city of Barcelona as a vacation destination, L'Aquarium is well worth a visit. L'Aquarium enables visitors to experience different marine habitats and to obtain an informative and intriguing insight into the sea world.
