L’Oceanografic!

We visited this amazing Aquarium, located in Valencia, Spain. It is the largest in Europe and we were impressed with the cleanliness, care and appearance of all represented species as well as the large tanks provided.

According to the official website: “The Oceanogràfic of the City of Arts and Sciences is the largest aquarium in Europe and contains representatives of the world’s main marine ecosystems. Each building is identified with the following aquatic environments: the Mediterranean, Wetlands, Temperate and Tropical Seas, Oceans, the Antarctic, the Arctic, Islands, and the Red Sea, as well as the Dolphinarium with 24 million litres of water and a depth of 10.5 metres. The Underwater Restaurant and the Access Building which welcomes visitors stand out because of their spectacular roofs designed by Félix Candela.”

Our favorite part was the tunnel that you walked through, surrounded by all manner of things, overhead and on either side, It was crystal clear…beautiful.

Here are various photos; they were taken with an I-phone, so I apologize for the lack of clarity.
