With the largest curved glass in the world, it houses about 350 species in tanks where you can observe a wide range of species, from sharks, piranhas, stingrays, and eyeless species to crocodiles and sea dragons! Once we have finished the visit, you will move to the city centre to take a tour around the historical heart of Vegueta, where Las Palmas de Gran Canaria was founded at the end of the 15th century.
