Nausicaa

Recommended
Entertaining and educational, the National Sea Centre or Nausicaá - a reference to one of Homer's heroines in The Odyssey - teaches visitors about the environment through a voyage of initiation to the depths of the sea. The ways in which humans have an impact on the marine environment are presented via 50 aquariums and large pools with over 36 000 animals from all the seas of the world, a reconstruction of a research vessel, and films.
