Barcelona’s Aquarium


The aquarium is situated at the seaside of Barcelona at “El Puerto Viejo”, near the shopping mall: el Maremagnum. You can take this opportunity to take a walk along Barcelona’s old port on your way to the aquarium.
The aquarium is adapted for all ages. It is perfect for families and especially those with small children – as you and your kids will love the fun atmosphere and amazing decorations which throw you right under the seas. Nevertheless, it is also convenient for adults – you are never too old to enjoy this beautiful and mysterious life under the sea. The aquarium is going to make you dive in straight into Nemo and Dory’s world.

The aquarium opened in 08/09/1995 and has been opened ever since. It is very well adapted and modern due to its recent creation. Therefore, expect some great quality service there (cafeteria, souvenir picture, tunnel under the tank and much more).

With over 1.5 million visitors a year, Barcelona’s aquarium is the largest one in Europe. Even if the structure seems small you will be delighted to discover more than 11 000 sea animals and over 450 different species.


At special hours, you get the chance to see penguins and stingrays being fed, as well. And if this doesn’t satisfy your adventurous side you can even drop down in the deep waters to encounter sharks.

It is generally open 10:00-20:00 all year long. You can easily enter for 20€ for an adult and 15€ for children. However, it is recommended to book your tickets online as the prices are slightly cheaper.
