Faunia, Madrid

3.2
#1 of 14 in Wildlife in Community of Madrid
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. Faunia is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Madrid Edition.

  • It is the second time that I and again BADLY, open at 10:30 and don't open the box office until 11:30, you have to wait if you arrive soon. Signals must be expensive because they are well hidden for displays. Places to eat with your meal... There is but insufficient and dusty because it is where the children Park. Good care that Yes, but the only thing to note.

  • A spectacular day in a spectacular setting. Highly recommended, you see the animals in their environment and not the typical sleepy animals

  • Faunia I visited with my husband and two children of 8 and 10 years who already pay adult price. I find it curious that being a family activity they have such small discounts for large family, in fact the mutual discount is more interesting. Besides being overly expensive meal is not good. The shows have changed somewhat and are very brief but very educational, I think that more interesting for parents as for children. Pay for parking regardless of the time you're. Very little personal, but very friendly.

  • We did the Manatee experience at Faunia and it was amazing; the staff were very friendly, helpful and answered all our questions, and the animals were incredible. The rest of the park is great, there are definitely better zoos out there, but Faunia has alot to offer. Highlights for me we're definitely the nocturnal animals and the sea lion show. Worth a visit if you're in Madrid and have a day spare, but it is tricky to get to from the city centre, so research public transport and plan ahead.
  • Best place for kids and parents. Fun way to learn about animal kingdom in this park. Park is not that crowdy and does not host all animals like Madrid zoo. Love the way animals are kept free here instead of being locked as is seen in most of the zoos. Animals are active; though its bit pricey its worth a visit. Book in advance via internet you will get good discount.
  • This park is not big. Not many animals. But we liked pavilion with pingüinos and crocodiles.
  • Doesn't have the big animals of most zoos but better for it
  • It's very nice place to encounter the animals at their habitats in a very close way. besides my son love the crocodiles.
