The City of the Sea was opened in 2002 following the disarmament of the submarine Le Redoutable and following the need to save the old transatlantic ferry terminal, which is included in the supplementary inventory of historical monuments since 1989.
The City of the Sea takes you to conquer large funds along the axis that runs from Ocean Pole attraction to the submarine one through the great gallery of machines and men, attractions 'We walked under the sea' and 'Pursue Red October', and through the exhibition dedicated to the Titanic.
When you visit the Ocean pole, you will understand that the deep sea has an equally difficult technical challenge levels than scientific exploration of the space, but has such a close interest so much more important!
17 aquariums including the Europe's deepest plunge you into this world so varied and colorful.
