The afternoon of the second day of our trip we walked down to the Aquarium Barcelona in the Port Vell harbor. We have visited a few aquariums in our travels (Seattle, Chicago, Corpus Christi) over the years.
We had seen it listed before our trip, but it was actually recommended as a place to see by the driver we had from the airport.
It was one of the best we have visited. In particular we liked the ‘tunnel’ shown above where you could walk through the midst of their large (118 feet in diameter, 980,000 gallon) tank.
This won’t be on everyone’s list of sites to see when visiting Barcelona, but if you like aquariums, you will enjoy it.
