Nausicaa

Recommended
Entertaining and educational, the National Sea Centre or Nausicaa - a reference to one of Homer's heroins in The Odyssey, teaches about the environment by getting to the heart of the matter with a voyage of initiation to the depths of the sea. The ways in which humans act on the marine environment is presented, thanks to 50 aquariums and large pools with over 36 000 animals from all the seas of the world, a reconstruction of a research vessel, films, medical training sessions etc.
