I’ve been here before in peak season and whilst still an amazing zoo it got too much with the hoards of people and not being able to see much. This time out of season on a grey but still warm day was a pleasure! We...More

I used to think zoos were great as a kid until I learnt the dark truth behind them. Especially in the case of Barcelona, this zoo beside the park is so so tiny for the exotic animals that are imprisoned there. If you go, you...More

When we got to the zoo, it looked tiny and we didn't think we'd be there long - however it's basically a tardis! It never seems to end. There was a great range of animals to view, the majority looked like they had a decent...More

We had mixed feelings after this visit. Some aspects were really good with low fencing/deep trenches so you felt close to the animals and some aspects were poor. There was a lot of concrete and some of the animals looked sad and like they needed...More

As a veterinary assistant, and animal lover i'm shocked at the conditions these animals are kept. The zoo is old dirty, grimy and most shops/facillities are broken, half-collapsed or just boarded up. Zookeepers inside enclosures with animals still in it were smoking and drinking cans...More

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

It's about a 1 hour drive down the coast to get to Zoo! You will not be disappointed! Take some munchies if your gonna do trip! Eating is pretty limited. Super fun! Great displays! Lots of kids having time of life! Enjoy!
