Mediterranean Biodiversity will dazzle you!

About 300 species of fish, invertebrates and Mediterranean plants, evolve in the basins, whose decorations, reproduce identically the underwater biotopes of the Catalan coastline. Discover the littoral zone, with its sandy bottoms and lagoons, then immerse yourself deeper to marvel at the indispensable Posidonia meadows, the rocky bottoms, or the corraligenous, a favorite exploration ground for divers.

Do you see the amazed look of your children in front of the clown fish? After this visit, you will be just as excited as they are to put on a mask and snorkel, and go see for real what the Mediterranean hides!

As fun as it is educational!

An aquarium is not just a beautiful display case with fish! Take advantage of the subdued atmosphere of the premises to combine business with pleasure and introduce your children to science by observing researchers in their daily activities in the publicly visible laboratory.

Still want to learn while having fun? A discovery tank allows you to get up close and personal with surprising animals, the invertebrates. These little-known animals represent an important part of biodiversity and their diversity of forms, colors and behaviors is incredible.

In short?

The Aquarium is the perfect place to keep the little ones busy all year round, and a welcome shelter to take refuge when it rains…or the sun beats down too hard!

Its clever mix of education and beauty is the perfect introduction to our beautiful city, and the perfect stop to take a break before immersing yourself in the Mediterranean and seeing its richness with your own eyes!

So don’t hesitate any longer!
