Seville Aquarium Overview and What to See

The Seville Aquarium is a relatively new addition to Seville, opening in September 2014. The aquarium has over 35 tanks, housing over 7000 creatures.

The aquarium is centred around a huge tank that houses multiple rare and unique species, including two female bull sharks, fully grown turtles, stingrays, and many more. This large tank has multiple viewing windows at various points around the aquarium’s circuit, including an underground glass tunnel that goes right beneath the tank offering you multiple excellent views.

The aquarium is split into five distinct areas, with each area displaying a different ecosystem (the Guadalquivir (river through Seville), the Atlantic Ocean, the Rainforest, Oceanarium, and the Indo-Pacific Ocean). Each section has multiple tanks with viewing windows from all sorts of angle offering a glimpse of a varied range of creatures.

One minute you can be looking at miniature seahorses, and the next a 12 foot anaconda! The aquarium does a great job of linking the displays, offering an educational journey around the easy to follow ‘circuit’.

Recently the Aquarium has opened a jelly fish exhibition, offering an almost ‘art-like’ display of creatures from the very depths of the ocean. These displays are full of vibrant colours and the dim lighting in the area creates a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere.

The aquarium is geared around educational content with multiple information points and interactive monitors to allow you to learn about the creatures and species you are seeing. It is especially great for children, who will not only be entertained, but also have the chance to expand their knowledge of marine conservation and sustainability initiatives.

There are stations that allow you to touch various creatures named ‘Toca Toca’ (the Spanish for ‘Touch Touch’) including starfish, sea cucumbers and sea urchins! The aquarium also hosts organised talks throughout the day from the staff who work at the aquarium (including excellent information from the on-site laboratory) and there are options for guided tours available at reception.

The Seville aquarium also has a cafe/restaurant, toilets and a gift shop (some very very cute stuffed animals available to buy!) – it’s an excellent way to spend a few hours in Seville and we highly recommend visiting.

How to Get to Aquarium de Séville

The Seville Aquarium is conveniently situated within the heart of Seville, just south of the city centre, making it easily accessible to visitors exploring the city’s other attractions.

It has a prime location along the bank of the Guadalquivir River, enhancing its accessibility and making it easy to navigate from the centre.

If you’re planning to arrive by public transport there are buses that go near the aquarium: Tussam 3, 6 and 34 stopping at La Palmera.

It’s also worth noting that the Seville Hop-On Hop-Off Tour Bus also stops at the aquarium and so is a great option if you’re planning to explore Seville.

The nearest metro is Puerta Jerez (a 15 minute walk away) and there is also an underground parking lot right next to the aquarium if you’re travelling by car.
