Blue Water in the City.

Let me lay my cards on the table before I begin, I am not a great aficionado of aquaria. I am, however, a huge fan of the Ciudad de las Artes y Ciencias and so I went more to see the architecture up close than to look at the fishes.

First impressions – It is stunning. The towering, shell-like buildings, the steel, the wooden walkways and all that water is a beautiful combination. There is chill-out music playing everywhere. So, the visit is very calming from the moment you walk in.

There was plenty to see. We visited the igloo, representing the Arctic, which has walruses in tanks that are all around the walls inside this very stunning building. They also had the King Penguins in. We watched them cavorting for a very long while.

The next port of call was the Dolphin Auditorium. No shows whilst we were there, but we watched a few being fed, and the auditorium itself is state of the art.

We saw most of the areas during our visit but the highlight of the day was the glass tunnel under the sea, at over 70 metres long – it is one of the longest in the world – and it was wonderful. We spent more time here than anywhere in the park – it was a little like a session of meditation.

Get along to the L´Oceanogràfic – it is an excellent day out and I have no space left to tell you about the other seas and the restaurant and the flamingoes – but hey, visit the web site – it’s fun too, with lots of whale/dolphin songs.
