Its building is one of the most eye-catching in the Park of the Nations. It “floats” in the Ocean, and can be accessed only by crossing a footbridge. During the 1998 Expo in Lisbon, it was called the Oceans Pavilion (Pavilhão dos Oceanos), and was one of the most popular attractions.
Visiting the Oceanarium
The Oceanarium has two floors, and everything rotates around a huge central aquarium. We recommend following the arrows so that you can visit the marine species from various oceans in the world. The top floor features water-dwelling animals that live closest to the water surface, while on the lower floor you’ll find deep-sea creatures.
The largest aquarium is probably the most impressive part of the Oceanarium. It houses hundreds of species, including several types of sharks, stingrays, manta rays and colourful tropical fish.
