Informations - Museums


The Aquarium is placed in Porto Moniz, more necessarily in the Fort of João Baptista, a monument erected in 1730 to give reply to the onslaughts and the attacks perpetrated for the pirates on the local population. Its ruins had been recouped in 1998, and the Fort came back to have its original aspect. But the interior was adapted to accomodate the current Aquarium.
