Faunia, Madrid

(3.2/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Faunia, a botanical garden and zoo covering 14 hectares (35 acres), actually feels smaller and more interactive than a typical zoo. You’ll find all types of animals here, but highlights include an black agouti, several varieties of penguins, and a bat enclosure. Zookeepers give informative talks about manatees, Komodo dragons, and wallabies. Check the official website to see if an event coincides with your visit. The majority of installations are covered, so it’s a comfortable stop on both sunny and rainy days.

  • We loved faunia! You need all day to see it, is huge! Very neat, clean everything. The incredible spectacle of dolphins and penguins!

  • The bag of dry grass, the size of the Palm of the hand, to feed the goats is worth €2, i.e. more expensive than gold weight. Food for people is so bad that not even animals would eat it is. With regard to the Park, it's not big but it has a significant fauna

  • Good plan to spend a day with the children. Everything is very well kept and surprised me for good. Better get tickets online, cheapest. The worst pay 5e by rate flat parking.

  • The animals are happy, not the same in the zoo
  • The park is "ok". Very dirty and no exit signs. Got lost and couldn't get out.
  • Very nice! There are no big animals that usually at zoos have very little space. The animals at Faunia seemed to have enough space. It is also a different kind of zoo as there ar areas where you can walk among the animals, such as the monkeys (curious little things!). The zoo was also surprisingly large. Most of the restaurants were closed, though and we got lost because there weren't enough maps around the zoo. Otherwise, a great place to visit. I liked it more than "The Zoo".
  • Great to visit, but too expensive for the services
  • good place
