Great, especially the tank with the sharks that dominate the place. Good to see when in town. Would expect more marine and even more Amazon species though.

    waou ct trop cool a ne pas oublier

  4. Barcelona Oceanarium - A Loyola (18 Jul 2012 - 09:30)

    I was sorry to read in the description of this Oceanarium the statement "the only one in Europe".

    Lisbon´s Oceanarium presents not only a crowded sea bottom mixing animals from the different oceans (as shown in the movie), but animal habitats reproducing different seaside regions.

    I was planning a visit to Barcelona, but will reconsider, since data presented in the Internet is not reliable.
