  • We went to the BCN zoo on a Sunday in MY, and we really loved it! Book online to save 20% on the ticket. The zoo has so many different animals, from dolphins to lions to elephants! It is very well managed and they run several activities to preserve and protect wild life. Totally recommended!!
  • Absolutely astonishingly beautiful place in the middle of such a lovely City. All the animals in their enclosures look happy and clean the kids absolutely loved being able to see all of the animals in their enclosures and in their beds and also the parks along the way! money well spent! Family of 5 for under €50 highly recommended!
  • Great zoo ideal for children. Lots to do and animals to see. Take a picnic with you and you can spend a full day without spending a fortune inside. Great children's activity playgrounds in several areas of the zoo.
  • This is a really big zoo, it took us a good 3 to 4 hours to see everything. Lots of parrots in enclosures and birds wondering around. They have a good mix of animals from reptiles, birds, mammals. Our favourite part was the Dolphin show, open til 3pm. I really recommend a visit if you enjoy Zoo's.
  • This is a wonderful zoo! So huge and you would never know from looking at the entrance. The only thing wrong with it, is that it seems like the animals are all sleeping all the time. So, you walk by and you can barely see them or they almost look like statues. But, there is a huge amount of animals!
