Explora! is an interactive space within L’Aquàrium de Barcelona 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. In Explora!, three Mediterranean coastline environments are represented: The marshes of the Ebro Delta, a corner of the Costa Brava and an underwater cave in the Medes Islands.
These shallow, brackish water lagoons are an important habitat for many animal species, especially migratory birds. Explora! invites you to learn about the marshes in many different ways, for instance, with magnifying glasses and by analysing footprints in the mud.
All along the Catalonian coastline, there are many sandy beaches that are protected by large rocky cliffs that fall spectacularly into the sea. Discover the marshes and beaches of the Costa Brava in this corner of Explora!, where you can feel the waves break over you, without getting wet of course!
In this marine reserve just off the Catalonian coast, you can explore the reef and remains of a shipwreck – areas of refuge for many organisms. Discover them!
