  • Everything is clear and well explained, it's very interesting. Side aquarium, we were fortunate enough to attend the meal of various marine animals. Meals commented on by the healer who explained well the habits and life of each fish or crustacean. Negative outside the building very degraded and who does not walk in the door.
