Gran Kanariya’s capital – Las Palmas can soon please the tourists and residents with new sight – a big aquarium under the name «The poem about the sea» (English Poem of the Sea). The unique construction becomes an interesting place for visit and will allow to involve on the island even more tourists from all over the world.
On a plan of architects, the form of an aquarium will simulate a sea wave that will allow to create at visitors feeling of the real immersion in the underwater world. Thanks to the site on an ocean coast, future aquarium will laconically be entered in a local landscape and becomes a coastline ornament. It is planned that its tanks will contain more than 300 types of sea flora and fauna. At night a structure will illuminate by means of light-emitting diode lamps.
Mayor Las Palmas Juan Jose Kardon reports that work should be complete by the beginning of 2016, and official foundation stone laying is planned for November.
It is necessary to remind that the island Gran Kanariya is well-known for a large quantity of the most different thematic parks, gardens and entertainment complexes where each tourist can find for itself something special.
