Be the first to enter L’Aquàrium de Barcelona. With the help of an expert, we will bring you closer to the sea and its inhabitants.
On this 90-minute tour you will get to know and learn to love what nature hides behind her blanket of different shades of blue. Get to know its secrets and curiosities through our aquariums.
At the beginning of the visit, we are surrounded by the Mediterranean’s surface ecosystems and we then gradually dive deeper and deeper, showing the various habitats, animals and plants that are characteristic of each bathymetric zone, as well as dedicating aquariums to areas of special interest, such as the Medes Islands marine reserve, which has a specially rich biology and biodiversity. We will visit, among other aquariums, the largest and most spectacular of L’Aquàrium de Barcelona: the Oceanarium.
As a counterpoint to this itinerary through the depths of the Mediterranean, there is also a gallery featuring a series of tanks on the planet’s most representative tropical seas, including the Red Sea, the Caribbean and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, where visitors can compare the austere beauty of the sea bathing our shores with the explosion of colour and biodiversity of the fauna native to coral seabeds. But take care! Some tropical species are also poisonous.
Without a doubt, some of L’Aquàrium’s most spectacular guests are its sharks. During the tropical itinerary, you can get a close-up view of various shark species, including the blacktip reef shark and the oceanic whitetip shark, as well as the zebra shark.
After the visit you will have the opportunity to see how we feed the penguins.
