    • The San Sebastián Aquarium is one of the most popular attractions in the Basque Country, with 300,000 visits a year. It is an obligatory stop for all visitors to the city. The Aquarium stands in one of San Sebastián’s most picturesque spots, the harbour, right next to the Old Town, with its enormous gastronomic selection, and only a few minutes from the city centre.

      The San Sebastián Aquarium occupies an emblematic building dating from 1928, with two floors dedicated to the maritime and marine heritage of Gipuzkoa. Particularly interesting is the skeleton of a northern right whale in addition to numerous tanks dedicated to the Bay of Biscay, in which you can view more than 200 species, not forgetting the famous 360º tunnel and a variety of tropical species.

    Very interesting, well thoughts through, balanced display of live fish and marine history of San Sebastian. Not the largest exhibition of live fish (we've been in larger ones in Italy and France), but very well laid out and preserved. The kids (12 and 10) loved it. Only concern with covid-19: people tend not to maintain social distancing and there's limited supervision.

    We came for the fish, so while the history part was good, we just kind of skimmed that part. The aquarium part is great. Really beautiful fish and presentation, and the tube is awesome. I do think...
