The depths of the sea Editors' Note

One of Europe’s most modern aquariums, San Sebastian Aquarium is as attractive today, as it was a hundred years ago, when it first opened its doors.

With a wealth of knowledge and information, its beautiful clown fish that look like the sweet little Nemo and with the 360 degrees acrylic tunnel, San Sebastian Aquarium is a wonderful experience for children of all ages.
