Located on the modern City of Arts and Sciences just outside the city centre, the Oceanogràfic is Europe's largest covered marine park. With a large variety of pools and water enclosures, the oceanarium is home to some 45,000 different animals including sharks, dolphins, whales and sea lions as well as bright jellyfish and various types of crab and sea horses.
This broad variety of species is spread into 10 different areas within the attraction to accomodate for all types of climate from the Antarctic through to Tropical waters. A large part of this water is pumped directly from the Mediterranean sea only a few hundred metres away. Most of the park is located underground, so don't be put off by the apparent small size of the building housing the main entrance.
With the vast number of animals to see inside, our personal favourite is the 'Oceans' tank housing a number of large sharks and colourful fish which swim around you as you walk through the tunnel.
