My guide Last update 1 year ago
© Pedro A. Pina
The Portuguese claim that it's the biggest aquarium in the world. In any event it's certainly one of Lisbon's biggest tourist attractions. Since its opening in 1998, the Oceanarium has received almost ten million visitors. Five oceans are simulated in the aquarium which contains over five million litres of water, more than 8,000 plants and 500 different species of animal. A visit is highly recommended! The aquarium lies in Pargue das Nacoes.
