Grand Opening of ‘Poema del Mar’ Aquarium in Gran Canaria
The long-awaited inauguration of Poema del Mar, an innovative aquarium launched by the company Loro Parque, took place on Sunday, 17th December in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Located next to the Cruise Ship Pier in the Sanapu Dock, only 200 meters away from the famous Las Canteras Beach, the aquarium has illuminated the centre of the capital of the island with impressive multi-coloured shark silhouettes on the façade of the building.
This is a modern and ambitious project of over 12.500 m2 and over 350 species with a strong commitment to innovation, the conservation of biodiversity, and excellence in sustainable tourism. The authorities of the Canary Islands, Spain, have called Poema del Mar as a project of ‘strategic, regional interest’, which would reinforce Gran Canaria and the entire archipelago as one of the top international tourism destinations worldwide
