Above photo - Part of the ultra modern Aquarium in Valencia, most of the facility is underground.

The Aquarium in Valencia supports 500 plus animal species.

Scheduled to leave Valencia by train in the afternoon we only had time to explore one of he sights of the Ciutat de laes Arts i de les Ciencies, the Aquarium.

The Aquarium is really an all day outing, with only three hours avialable to us we rushed our way through the atractions, something I would not recommend. Also, the ticket prices are a little pricey for a few hours of entertainment, best to plan to spend several hours here.

Under water tubes can be taken between some of the different water habitats.

The Valencia Aquarium is an excellent place to take the family, particular the younger set that might need a break from the historic sight seeing. The aquarium features a dolphin pool with regular shows.


At the aquarium most of the action takes place below ground (ah, water) but the views above can be interesting too.
