Not sure what the complaints about size were all about - maybe those patrons missed the second floor...? I came in expecting to be disappointed, based on the reviews, but thought it was a decent-sized place, with the super cool factor of a tunnel with...More

The aquarium is nicely designed and well laid out. Unfortunately as has been noted on TA it is on the small side. Allow 30 minutes for a visit and you will not be disappointed.

We was impressed by the number of species of fish you have in your aquarium, including those beautiful penguins and those sharks. We also have been very pleased to see different kinds of sturgeons.

After reading many reviews criticizing this aquarium, we were pleasantly surprised at how nice the aquarium is and how much we all enjoyed it, including the 3 and 5 year olds in our group. Definitely worth a visit when you're in Barcelona. Certainly if you...More

I heard it was among the largest aquaria in Europe. Didn't seem that grand. It was a good experience nonetheless. The location is great though.
