The aquarium of Ierissos
It might not be large or impressive but thousands of young visitors stick their faces on the glass for hours and refuse to leave. They particularly appreciate it! It is located in a semi-basement space, on the beach of Ierissos and houses fish, sea species and shellfish from the gulf of Ierissos such as mormyruses, stingrays, scorpions, mullets, basses, groupers, breams, lobsters, flying fish etc. It has a capacity of 40 cubic meters and contains seawater that is constantly renewed by a special pump that is connected to the sea.
The aquarium is open all day and the entrance is free.
