We went to the BCN zoo on a Sunday in MY, and we really loved it! Book online to save 20% on the ticket. The zoo has so many different animals, from dolphins to lions to elephants! It is very well managed and they run several activities to preserve and protect wild life. Totally recommended!!

Absolutely astonishingly beautiful place in the middle of such a lovely City. All the animals in their enclosures look happy and clean the kids absolutely loved being able to see all of the animals in their enclosures and in their beds and also the parks along the way! money well spent! Family of 5 for under €50 highly recommended!

Great zoo ideal for children. Lots to do and animals to see. Take a picnic with you and you can spend a full day without spending a fortune inside. Great children's activity playgrounds in several areas of the zoo.

This is a really big zoo, it took us a good 3 to 4 hours to see everything. Lots of parrots in enclosures and birds wondering around. They have a good mix of animals from reptiles, birds, mammals. Our favourite part was the Dolphin show, open til 3pm. I really recommend a visit if you enjoy Zoo's.

This is a wonderful zoo! So huge and you would never know from looking at the entrance. The only thing wrong with it, is that it seems like the animals are all sleeping all the time. So, you walk by and you can barely see them or they almost look like statues. But, there is a huge amount of animals!

There a few days ago and can't understand why some people have to say such negative things about the place. Yes some animals were sleepy but its good that they feel relaxed enough to rest with so many people mulling around them. They are clearly cared for and looked after. Keep up the good work guys n gals I salute you 👍

Absolutely a fab place, looks tiny from outside but it goes on for ages. Really tidy and clean food is also good but quite expensive. Great way to spend three to four hours easily

The zoo is well laid out with a good variety of animals, birds & reptiles. Enclosures for inhabitants were clean & well maintained. Plenty of rest areas with & without usual fast food/ice-cream stalls. Had a good 5 hour visit with my 6 year old granddaughter who thoroughly enjoyed it. Would certainly recommend a visit.

I was so upset when I came to the zoo. I could feel the depression in the animals. They just sat and stared. The camels humps were deflated and drooped indicating they are dehydrated and have not been fed for a long period of time. The animals looked unkempt and walked up and down stooped over and slowly. The elephants looked as if they hadn't had water for days. The monkeys hid away from the people and the orangutan stared into the glass with his hands under his chin. Other people also commented on how miserable the animals looked. I would have this zoo closed down if it was up to me. It was a very sad experiance. I took no pictures as it was too upsetting for me.

Every animal we up to was begging for food and water. There was no shade for the animals to hide under. This zoo should be ashamed of itself. This is not a good zoo. The lions and tigers could've jumped out easily. That zoo needs to be brought up to code. I do not recommend this zoo.

Fairly good exhibit, however many of the animals clearly have no good quality of life as they are shut away in very small cages. For example, a Kingfisher in a cage about 3x4x5 metres, with only a few fish in water in a cat litter tray for food. Cage size was notably too small for almost all birds, and some Comodo Dragons were in glass enclosures only as long as their bodies. The dolphins also had very little pool space, although it does not seem so at first.

This is a must see if you visit Barcelona. There are many brilliant animals to see. The vantage points allow you to feel up close and personal with all the animals The overall size of the zoo gives it a safari park feel. The animals are very well catered for and their homes are as they would be if the animals were still living wild. This brilliant attraction will suit all age groups and bring you a lot of pleasure.

Fun zoo for kids and families. We got a family membership as it pays for itself in two visits. We love the parks for kids and how they are seeking to improve the habitats. I am a big fan of the birds inside the entrance. It's a great place to meet up for a picnic as you can bring your own food in with you.

I would have given them five stars if there was convenient, free parking or even paid parking on site. They have plenty of animals and you can fill a whole day here. Very good for children and located right next to a park. In contrast to American places you can bring food and beverages with you.

Beautiful setting for a nice zoo! A bit of an oasis in the middle of the city located close to the central train station and there were surprigsingly few people around. Would recommend adding it to your Things-to-Do-List for your visit to Barcelona - especially if you have kids.
