  • Was recommended this and it didn't disappoint we had a great day out strolling g around looking at the animals The variety of animals was really good and the grounds kept in great condition making it ...  more »
  • This is a nice little animal park. What is absolutely unacceptable is the fact that about a third of the site is closed due to construction and refurbishment work, but the full entrance fee of over €21 (!!) is charged per adult person. Can't be at all!

  • This Zoo is fantastic, plenty of interesting animals to see like my personal favorite. The Komodo Dragon. I had enjoyed exploring the zoo but i have to say it was very hot and I had gotten blisters on...  more »

  • Very nice and clean park. Very big, you can plan an entire day trip. A lot of information is written in English. Beautiful surroundings and nice picnic area. I recommend to take snack and drink with you. We saw a lot of different animals. Very interesting. We enjoyed in dolphin show also. From the animal's point of view, this is kind of a prison - restricted area of movement, many visitors. The reality is a little sad, but it is visible that staff is taking care very good for all animals. All praise for this. In the end is very nice souvenir shop.
  • Zoo Barcelona has been a pleasant discovery for me (I don;t like zoos actually)! Quiet, full of old trees and sunny lawns, it's a hermitage for lots of happy animals. The habitats are built with love and common sense. I loved the possibility to see giraffes, kangaroos, various birds, one amazing Komodo dragon and lots of other inhabitants of this wonderful zoo, where you can spend a day like a journey to the world of nature. The place is definitely worth coming back again and again.
  • Amazing zoo. With large enclosures for the animals, hands on experiences and great swing and slide parks for the kids to burn off some energy. The cafes and restaurants are a little expensive but you can take a picnic with you and there are some great picnic tables situated looking over the enclosures and the animals.
  • A great place for family with children. It is great to experience this zoo like an open space for animal and people to “see”each other. If is more nature than most zoo I went.
  • One of my favorite places in Barcelona. A must see attraction. Great for families and kids. Tip: bring your snack and water. Also, book your tickets online in advance (I booked mine 2 hours before my visit, and got them on my mobile, scanned them at the gate directly from my mobile, no need for printed tickets). Enjoy
