CALA GONONE AQUARIUM
AQUARIUM IN SARDINIA


Opened July 10, 2010 the Aquarium of Cala Gonone is made on a project by the internationally renowned architects Peter Chermayeff and Sebastian Gaias. It is a structure of modern architecture, carefully designed for a maximum integration in the natural scenery of the Gulf of Orosei. The beautiful Mediterranean park that surrounds the aquarium, the reduced visual impact of the work from the sea and the presence of more than three hundred species mostly from the Gulf, testify to this philosophy, where typicality and respect for the environment are very close. The respect for the environment is clear in the choice of using recycled materials such as glass in granular for the filtration systems, and the latest technology with low energy consumption.
The 25 aquariums offer an imaginary journey from the shore up to the habitats of the deep sea, passing through the rocky shores where the waves break and the endlessness space of the open sea dominated by jellyfish, sea urchins and large snappers!
You can discover the world of the cute trumpet fish, the awesome power of the cuttlefish camouflage, the dark dens of moray eels and many other spectacular inhabitants of the Gulf of Orosei and the Mediterranean Sea.
The aquarium also hosts a splendid specimen of turtle Caretta caretta, found beached in Ragusa in 2011, of which the scientific staff of the nursing facility the recovery path.
The aquariums of tropical seas host wonderful and bright colors species that live in coral reefs. They only wait for the those who complete the visit with the exciting experience of getting in contact with stingrays, starfish, sea urchins and hermit crabs in the tactile tank.
