Spend the day learning about the many creatures of the Barcelona Zoo, a modern facility home to more than 4,000 animals that's situated in the city's lush Parc de la Ciutdella. This family-friendly admission ticket offers a great opportunity to get up close and personal with a variety of unique animal life.

Make your own way to the zoo at your leisure. You're free to enter any time during the park's regular hours of operation, which typically start at 10am. Closing hours variety depending on the time of year, so check in advance before your visit. Head inside this sprawling facility, which covers almost 32 acres (13 hectares) of animal exhibits. Most visitors need a whole day to fully experience all it has to offer. Feel free to use the park's mini-train to move around, or hire one of the zoo's electric cars (at your own expense).

The zoo is split into various sections, each of which house spacious enclosures for different types of creatures like mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. Visit all the most-recognizable creatures you'd expect to find at a zoo, including tigers, lions, hippos, and monkeys, along with some of Spain's more indigenous animals like the Iberian wolf. Information plaques and interactive displays help provide educational details about each creature. There's also an 'infants' zoo' which offers tamer animals for young children, and a dolphinarium, offering a tank where playful dolphins put on a show in front of the exhibit's large windows.

During your visit, learn about Snowflake (Floquet de Neu), a rare white gorilla that called the zoo home until its death in 2003. To celebrate the life of Snowflake, the park has set up a variety of conservation and endangered species awareness programs to help preserve these majestic creatures.

When you need to take a break, the zoo offers a variety of cafés, picnic areas and restaurants, where you can relax and purchase food and refreshments at your own expense.

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.

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.

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.
