The big tank is amazing. It has a lot of variety of animals, and it's divided by continents giving you a overview of where each animal is from.

It's one of the most visited aquario of Portugal, totally dedicated to the oceans, unfortunately I had no time for a visit, but friends told us, there are 4 main tanks, filled with countless different species; nice to go with children.
