Conceived for the 1998 Lisbon World Expo, dedicated to the Oceans, the Oceanario was called the Ocean Pavilion.
Designed by the North American architect Peter Chermayeff, it had surprised by its audacity, its location on the banks of the Tagus and its structure.
Divided into four areas to represent the Pacific, Oceanic, Indian and Southern Oceans… the Oceanario offers beautiful excursions into the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans.
The idea is to reconstruct the specific universes that determine these marine spaces.
The main attraction of the aquarium is undoubtedly the giant tank that connects all these spaces, and on both levels. It allows you to move from one room to another accompanied by manta rays, moon fish and sharks swimming in the reservoir.
