About this activity
Enjoy an fun an educational day at Barcelona Zoo, in Parc de la Ciutadella. Besides having the accolade of being Spain’s most modern zoo, it’s also Spain’s oldest – having been open to members of the public since 1882. Covering a space of nearly 32 acres (13 hectares), the zoo really requires a full day to see it all, and luckily, there’s a mini-train to help you get around. Alternatively, you can hire an electric car at your own expense.

Reproducing the natural habitat of the animals that live in it, Barcelona Zoo is split into different spacious sections with open enclosures for mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles. Additional areas include the ‘infants’ zoo’ where kids can get up close to tamer animals, and the dolphinarium, where friendly dolphins perform in front of large viewing windows.

Until recently, Barcelona Zoo was particularly well known for being the home of a rare white gorilla called Snowflake (Floquet de Neu), who sadly died in 2003. To keep the memory of Snowflake alive, the zoo is passionate about helping endangered gorillas – participating in numerous endangered species awareness and conservation programs.

See all the big-name animals that you’d expect to see in a top zoo, like hippos, lions, tigers and monkeys, as well as animals that are native to Spain, like the Iberian wolf. As you explore, learn all about these fascinating creatures from information signs and interactive zones around the zoo.

With plenty of leafy picnic areas, cafés and restaurants on site, you can eat lunch at the zoo (own expense), or simply sit down and relax in between seeing Barcelona’s impressive collection of animals!

A very rainy day when we visited so it was not busy. Also because of the bad weather not all the animals were seen as they did not like the rain either!! We were the only people on the train that circuited the zoo and so we got a personal tour with plenty of stop time for photos. The sea lion show was also cancelled because of the weather. Staff were ok. Food was dreadful- do not eat here, everything was cold although supposed to be hot including the drinks. Lots of animals were seen Elephant, Rhino, Hippo, Wolf , Giraffe etc. An enjoyable day and easy to get to on the metro.

It's a nice zoo , nothing special. We rented a golf cart to see the zoo faster and avoid the hot sun.

Excellent zoo. The majority of cages are quite spacious giving the animals plenty of room to move around although there are still a few small ones particularly for some of the monkeys.
