I really like Lisbon…it combines old and new:
It was part of our epic trip in May 2016.
And my favourite Belem Tower :
The Lisbon Oceanarium (Oceanário de Lisboa) is the second largest aquarium in Europe, after L’Oceanogràfic in Valencia. More than 15,000 living creatures of more than 450 different species coexist in its habitat.
The Oceanarium has two floors, and everything rotates around a huge central aquarium. If you go round it in the specified order you’ll see marine species from different oceans. On the upper floor you’ll see surface animals and plants, while on the lower floor you’ll find the marine species from the depths.
The central aquarium is probably the one that most catches the eye in the Oceanarium, as here there are hundreds of species living together: sharks, stingrays, manta rays, and tropical fish are some of the inhabitants. (source: http://www.lisbon.net/oceanarium)
It was the first attraction we visited in Lisbon 🙂 I just loved it ! Large tank, many oceans, marine life, exhibitions. Fun for kids and adults xd
Just click the photo to enlarge.
You could go across the rainforest as well 🙂 It was so warm in there 😛
Besides the permanent exhibition – the tank in the floating building – there is a temporary exhibition called Forestas, created by Takashi Amano features tropical forests inside a magnificent aquarium. Nature is just relaxing, I would spend a day in there and enjoy the underwater species in the aquarium. Amazing exhibition !
