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.

We thought this was the oceanarium - however, once we went inside, the photos were captioned with portugese and the small building looked old. The indoor "pools" were empty and there were not a variety of fish. We left after 15 minutes, which was more...More
