The site also has the ‘largest roof garden in Spain’ and the showstopper of the entire place is the shark tank, nicknamed ‘The Big Blue’ which is the deepest shark tank in entire Europe. With supervision, the kids can have a shark sleepover and camp out in front of the tank all night. Talk about fun!
