great selection of animals, one of the best dolphin shows in Europe if not the world. Easy to navigate, so much to see and do. Well worth a second visit. So many rare breeds of animals too not seen anywhere else...lots of places to eat and drink and good entrance ticket value made for an unforgettable day trip
The zoo was a nice departure from seeing architecture, artists and local history. It is a fairly large zoo to walk around so be prepared for that. There were large parts of the zoo under construction while we were there. The dolphin show is a pre set schedule so make sure o get there in advance if you are intending go see it. Going too late in the day will not allow you to see a show and walk the zoo. Zoo staff were very friendly. There was no line at the zoo so we did not really need to skip any line. Viator purchase needs to be brought to ticket window and exchanged for a zoo ticket.
Beautiful day out, zoo itself is nice but does need a bit of investment - not quite the level of London. Kids where happy, that's the main point.
Great zoo with lots of different animals. It is huge much bigger than London zoo. Definitely worth a visit when in Barcelona. We didn't pay the extra for the aquarium but we still watched the dolphin show free of charge. The only bad point is that there weren't many ramps for prams which is a pity as we have twins so there wee a few animals they couldn't see.
Animal enclosures were too small and the food was gross and expensive.
We went in early December which meant we didn't see it at its best. For example, we didn't see the Savannah area (elephants, giraffes) because of building work. Also, there was only one cafe open.
It was still a very enjoyable visit, particularly seeing the gorillas.
Altogether there were too many "missing" animals and empty spots. I believe the entire zoo showed its age and the state of the Spanish economy probably has something to do with it. It would have been better for us if the entrance employees mentioned the lack of refreshment options. There were limited places to sit and observe areas. Perhaps our problem was comparing it to Portland, Oregon's zoo which was phenomenal.
