What You Can Expect

Barcelona Zoo Entrance Ticket

Barcelona Zoo Entrance Ticket

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.
