The Parque Oceanografico is one of the four buildings that make up the 'City of Arts and Sciences', an important part of the cultural development within the Valencian capital. This oceanographic park, the only one of its kind in Europe, has been designed by Felix Candela. The park is set up like a real underwater city where the visitors are introduced into the different marine habitats so that they can see many different species in their faithfully reproduced natural surroundings. The objectives of this large park can be summarized as a place to have fun in while teaching visitors about life under 75% of the earth's surface.
The place was nice. Spread out and plenty to see. However, when you and the rest of the world go to spend some time in airconditioning. DON'T. The first building we walked into was the information building. Hot and sticky. The second was the one right next door. Very hot! Everyone was fanning themselves, and it didn't smell very good. We had been in the park for 10minutes before I went back to information to say we weren't staying and wanted a refund. Oh yeah, I'm in spain. Of course that wasn't possible. Customer service, yeah right!
They didn't care at all. So we parked our selves in the Artic (AC worked in there, wonder why) to cool off before heading out. Don't know why they find this acceptable.
On a good cool day I'm sure it would be fine.
