This Glass Bubble if founded on the see floor, it's close to the Acquarium and it hosts different type of ferns. Thanks to a sophisticated "system of sails" this tropical environment is protected from the direct irradiation of the sun.

This is a magical place where you can learn a lot of things thanks to the generous aid of the biologists who will be pleased to guide you.
