    We spent a nice afternoon in the Aquarium of Gijón. Few species but very well decorated. The Otter returned us crazy! I recommend going with kids. Somewhat expensive to be so small.

    A must if you go with children. Moves awhile very entertaining and funny if you go with peace of mind. The store leaves much to be desired.
