Aquarium of La Rochelle


You like animals, the sea, fishes… This place is for you!
The aquarium of La Rochelle, one of Europe’s biggest aquariums, was inaugurated in 2001 and contains 3 000 000 liters of sea water!

It’s organized in different spaces representing the most important sea ecosystems of the planet, presenting many species of not only fishes, but also corrals, sea stars, crabs and any life form you can find under water. Either if you are interested by the biological/cultural aspect of the place (you can find information about every specimen aside the tanks) or just by the wonderful colors these fishes are here to show you, this is a great place to bring your LC-A or any of you lomo cameras, maybe with a tripod or at least a quite fast film (I used iso 400).

Last but not least, it is opened everyday during the whole year!
You will find more info on the aquarium website:
