Barcelona Zoo Reviews & Ratings

  • Amazing! Got to say this is better than London Zoo. So many animals to see. Ample seating for picnic/eating and encouraging to see. Just wish they didn't charge extortionate prices for drinks! Layout a bit confusing. Otherwise brilliant!

  • Really great value for money, we spent over 4 hours here and had the best time. Some bits were closed for refurbishment and I think it will be even better once they are reopened. All the animals had ample space and seemed really well looked after.

  • Very nice and clean park. Very big, you can plan an entire day trip. A lot of information is written in English. Beautiful surroundings and nice picnic area. I recommend to take snack and drink with you. We saw a lot of different animals. Very interesting. We enjoyed in dolphin show also. From the animal's point of view, this is kind of a prison - restricted area of movement, many visitors. The reality is a little sad, but it is visible that staff is taking care very good for all animals. All praise for this. In the end is very nice souvenir shop.

  • Amazing zoo. With large enclosures for the animals, hands on experiences and great swing and slide parks for the kids to burn off some energy. The cafes and restaurants are a little expensive but you can take a picnic with you and there are some great picnic tables situated looking over the enclosures and the animals.

  • Zoo Barcelona has been a pleasant discovery for me (I don;t like zoos actually)! Quiet, full of old trees and sunny lawns, it's a hermitage for lots of happy animals. The habitats are built with love and common sense. I loved the possibility to see giraffes, kangaroos, various birds, one amazing Komodo dragon and lots of other inhabitants of this wonderful zoo, where you can spend a day like a journey to the world of nature. The place is definitely worth coming back again and again.
