The Aquarium of Seville has recreated the ecosystems that Magellan found in the first voyage around the world. A journey with a fleet that departed from Seville and navigated across the length and breadth of the oceans to achieve for the first time the circumnavigation of the planet.
During the ‘transoceanic’ journey offered by the Aquarium of Seville you will discover the flora and fauna that impressed Magellan during his voyage.
You will enjoy more than 500 species from different ecosystems. There are different themed areas: Guadalquivir, Atlantic, Rainforest, Oceanarium, Indo-Pacific, among other areas, such as the ones dedicated to the African savannah or to the jellyfish.
The Sand Tiger Shark that dominates the majestic Oceanarium, the sturgeon that inhabited the waters of river Guadalquivir, the Undulate Ray from the Pacific, the Green Iguana from the forest or the Spotfin Lionfish are some of these fabulous creatures.
The Aquarium of Seville counts on the deepest shark tank in the Iberian Peninsula with a capacity of 2 million liters of water and a depth of 9 meters, in which you can enjoy seeing sea turtles and different shark species, among others.
