We decided to visit the zoo on a beautiful sunny day in December. I was a bit concerned that I might not enjoy it, as it was in a city park and I thought the animals may be squashed in. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the zoo and the amount of animals. Some of them looked a... More

Even if the zoo was doing some construction to improve some of the cages it was a nice experience. Really liked the idea with the golf cars you can rent.

We visited this zoo in late November. Entry tickets are about what you would expect for a good sized zoo as are the prices for food there. The zoo is in a process of regeneration at the moment with a large Savannah exhibit being built to house lions, elephants and giraffes. As I saw in a few other reviews some... More

Was totally shocked at how large this zoo is and how many animals there are!! So many interesting animals and beside each enclosure is a board with facts about the animal, in Spanish and English so lots to learn! The enclosures for the animals were large and clean and they all seemed to have plenty of food and drinks. Unfortunately... More

The zoo is very nice and it has a lot to show. We specially enjoyed the terrarium and the sea lion show. If you plan a visit, i recommend that you check the shows (very nice and educative for children). Also think about renting an electric car, especially if you are with young kids. This will preserve their energy. Keep... More

It was a rainy day when I visited the Zoo, however I still spent 2 1/2 hours here. Entrance is discounted with a Barcelona Card. There are lots of different animals to look at, some features are indoors so even when it's raining there are things to see/do. Some of the features were under construction, but for the most all...

This zoo has plenty of different animals to see and is a nice attraction to visit with young children. It's also surrounded by a park which we visited first and then spent around 4-5 hrs in the zoo and could've stayed longer if the kids weren't tired. Children under 3 are free so for our family of 4 it was... More

It's a good place to visit while you are at Barcelona with kids especially in sunny day. Lots of different animals to see so you need couple of hours to walk around. If you need something to eat there are couple places to choose from there as well. It's definitely worth to go with kids.

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
