Are you planning to visit the aquarium during your stay in Barcelona? Barcelona Aquarium (L'Aquàrium Barcelona) is in Plaça de l'Odissea, between the sea and the old port of Barcelona, Puerto Viejo. This are is particularly popular, which does not make parking easy. So that’s why we recommend booking your parking in advance with Parclick!
The Barcelona Aquarium is located on the Puerto Viejo in Barcelona and has 35 different aquariums with about 11,000 sea creatures and 450 different species. A special highlight is without a doubt the 80 meter long underwater tunnel, made entirely of glass. A walk through this part of the aquarium is spectacular, you can see everything!
The aquarium has been visited by 14 million people since its opening on 8th September 1995. In addition to the sight of various sea creatures, the aquarium also offers a number of exhibitions, a cafeteria, a souvenir shop and an auditorium. Plus, if you have a diving certificate, you can even dive into the main pool and swim amongst the sharks and thousands of fish.
If you are already in this area, you should also visit the old port of Barcelona, which is just next to the aquarium. His story is more than two thousand years old. Nowadays this historical part is used to moor some more modern boats.
In the central area of the port there is also a shopping centre, the Centro Comercial Maremagnum, which is open every day of the year. This place is a true paradise for shopaholics, and even if you have enough of shopping, there’s plenty of lovely cafés and restaurants to refuel! Plus, you can also eye up the Real Club Náutico and Real Club Marítimo’s yachts, just in case you’ve got some cash left over ;)
