Lisbon’s Oceanarium: Otterly Shark-tastic


There’s nothing more mesmerizing than watching the jungle under the waves in the comfort of climate control, dim lights, and fish sounds trickling out of the speaker system. If your visit were a song, standing slack-jawed in front of the thick glass of the central tank would be the chorus. You come back to it after side excursions ogling penguins, otters, tropical birds, and luminescent jellyfish.

This is the place to go when you need to reflect, ponder, or just let your mind wander in wonder. We all need to recharge and this is the best way we know how (especially when it’s raining or you just need some peace and quiet.)

And now, for your moment of zen:
