Faunia, Madrid

3.2
#1 of 7 in Wildlife in Community of Madrid
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
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.

  • This is a great park, no big animals but the different areas are well set out and with many internal areas you can escape from the outdoor heat periodically. Only issue is the transport links are not ...  more »
  • While it is quite a trek to get to Faunia (train to Manuel Becerra then bus), the location allows for less cramped animal settings. There are the usual farm pet animals, the wandering birds (including...  more »
  • Faunia is amazing. Much better than Madrid zoo. It can be reached by metro from the city centre but is a 15 min walk from the metro. I advise to plan your day and try to do the earlier shows as the sh...  more »

  • Best place for kids and parents. Fun way to learn about animal kingdom in this park. Park is not that crowdy as Madrid Zoo but also 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.
  • We expected more, the price is quiet high, the children farm has goats that big, that even adults are afraid to enter. The pinguin area is interesting, but it is built in a way that it is hard to see the animals.
  • Chained birds on the ground!!! The space is too small for most of the animals. This is a fun place for innocent kids but a horror show for adults!
  • Only bad thing about this place is the number of cashiers in the food court (which is one!) Great place to hang with the kids, make sure to book in advance to get your discount tickets
  • Great !! Plenty of fun for the kids they will love it

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
