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.

Great to see the space that some animals had.

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.

It's a nice zoo , nothing special. We rented a golf cart to see the zoo faster and avoid the hot sun.

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.

All a bit sad.
Small enclosures, not very clean and too much closed to the public.

Me and my sons had a fantastic day at the zoo. The weather was beautiful and lots of fun and laughs were had. Would recommend a visit to anyone especially as the zoo is set in a beautiful park with lots of additional fun to be had.
