What to see in Barcelona Zoo ?

The animals of the Barcelona Zoo

The visit to this zoological park, which covers almost 14 hectares, is organized along a route that reproduces as closely as possible the natural habitat of the animals that live there. The zoo boasts, for example, its facilities and habitats specially adapted to wild animals: some are free but separated from visitors by large ditches, others in cages but always very easily observed.

It should be noted that you can also rent a small electric car to drive around at your own pace or if you are a person with reduced mobility.

Show more

The zoo has long benefited from the popularity of its mascots, including "Floquet de neu" or " Snowflake ", the only albino gorilla known in the world. He was a star for 37 years before dying in 2003.

During your walk you will discover according to their habitat:

Primates such as gorillas, chimpanzees, orangutans or even macaques...

Animals coming straight from the savannah: lions, tigers, jaguars, giraffes, elephants, gazelles, hyenas, warthogs, hippos, zebras, camels...

But also mammals closer to us like wolves and bears.

All kinds of birds: eagles, vultures, griffins, toucans, flamingos, parrots, herons...

And many reptiles: crocodiles, alligators, snakes and even the famous Komodo Dragon from Indonesia, whose "Land of Dragons" park is very popular with the youngest.

 

You will learn a lot about each species concerned, its habitat, diet, reproduction and also its degree of preservation. Barcelona Zoo is known for its scientific work on European programmes for endangered species.

 

The Delphinarium

The zoo is regularly upgraded in order to continuously improve the quality of life of the animals. In this spirit of respect for animals, the Barcelona City Council has been considering since 2015, the expansion and eventual closure of the delphinarium and the transfer of dolphins and cetaceans to a marine sanctuary in the Mediterranean. For the moment the delphinarium is open until 28 March 2020. To be continued!!

Contact us: ticketing@barcelona.com and specify your name, first name, order number if you have it and remind us your email - the same email as your order - to facilitate the processing of your file. 

  • What does a 100% mobile ticket mean?

    A 100% mobile ticket simply means that your ticket - which you will receive by email just after your purchase - will be - in its electronic form (PDF) - sufficient to enable you to make your visit with your smartphone or tablet. All you have to do is present it at the checkpoint. A simple scan will allow you to make your visit.

  • Can I print my ticket?

    You can of course print your ticket if you don't have a smartphone, a tablet or if you simply prefer this option. Upon receipt of the confirmation email, simply print the PDF of the ticket. Then just present your printed ticket at the checkpoint.

  • What does a 100% skip the line ticket mean?

    A 100% skip the line ticket means that the ticket in question allows you to enter the place you want to visit in Barcelona without queuing, for example at the ticket office. All you have to do is present your ticket directly at the entrance. This way, you won't lose any time on your day of discovery.

  • What's included with this ticket?

    On this same page or on the ticket reservation page - the services included with the purchase of your ticket are systematically indicated. See the "Included" or “Inclusions” section for details.

  • Why do I have to specify a date when buying a ticket?

    When you are asked to specify the date of your visit, it is because the monument or service you have chosen to visit also requests it. Most of the time, this date allows tourist sites to limit the number of visitors and therefore to make the visits more fluid. Please note that if you are not asked to specify the time of your visit, this means that you can arrive at any time to visit the site - while respecting the visiting hours of the site in question.

  • Why do I have to specify a date and time when purchasing a ticket?

    Same as before, but here in addition to the date - the monument or service you have chosen to visit - also asks you to specify the time you wish to visit. Once again it is a matter of limiting the number of visitors so that your visit is as pleasant as possible.

  • With a ticket - date and time requested - do I have to arrive at the exact time or can I be a little late for my visit?

    On the ticket that you will receive by email after your purchase, it is normally specified how much time - in addition to the scheduled time - you are granted in order not to lose your visit. Please note, for example, that a visit to Parc Güell entitles you to entry 30 minutes after the stated time. The Sagrada Familia ticket indicates a time slot of 15 minutes. It is therefore important to respect this time slot. If the ticket does not specify a time slot, then the timetable must be respected.

  • Why are we talking about combined tickets?

    We talk about combined tickets in some of our offers when they offer, for example, two places to visit in Barcelona. The ticket itself is not combined. It is two separate tickets that we combine to make a more economical and attractive offer. You will receive these two tickets by email. As they are separate you can use them according to your preference when the tickets are open or according to the dates and times you choose.

  • How to benefit from a discount for example according to age or for students?

    When purchasing your ticket, discounts are always indicated when available. For example, there are regular discounts for children in different age groups, ranging from free for very young children to discounts for seniors over 65 years of age. Discounted tickets for students are indicated in the same way. 

    Don't forget your proof of discounts - identity card, student card... - to be shown during your visit to Barcelona.

  • What are the means of payment for the tickets?

    To pay online your tickets to visit Barcelona, are accepted the classic means of payment used worldwide such as:  Visa, Mastercard, Alipay, iDeal, GiroPay or Paypal.

After being robbed yesterday of my wallet on the metro and being our last day here before going back home to Canada, we thought that we would try to have a cheerful and pleasant, memorable day by visiting the Zoo. After reading the above reviews we have now changed our minds.

Maybe we will just feed the pigeons!

  3. Avoid barcelona Zoo - N Din (3 Feb 2014 - 08:45)

    I visited this zoo on the 28.1.2014. As an animal lover I was extremely shocked and left traumatised by the conditions that the animals were kept in. Small concrete pens with no stimulation. The rhino a magnificent animal kept in a concrete pen smaller than my garden! Very large Birds of prey kept in groups in pens the size of postage stamps. Barcelona is a wonderful city and should be ashamed at the manner in which the animals are kept. This is 2014 not the dark ages. I will never visit a zoo again. Avoid this zoo if you have an ounce of humanity. People who have written positive reviews - open your eyes!

  5. Enclosures too small - British Visitor (29 Nov 2013 - 09:45)

    We finally got around to visiting the zoo this summer on our third visit to Barcelona. However, I was very disappointed. The enclosures are far too small for some of the animals and they looked unhappy. I would not recommend anyone going here. There are so many other attractions in Barcelona that you do not need to waste your money coming here. I agree with a previous comment that they should concentrate on smaller animals, but I suppose they wouldn't be such a draw for the tourists. Not recommended.

  6. The Barcelona Zoo. - Danish tourist. (23 Aug 2013 - 23:00)

    The guy who made the last comment is wrong.

  7. zoo - irish tourist (5 Apr 2013 - 09:15)

    absolute disgrace the size of most of the enclosures , how animal rights groups are not trying to close this place down i do not know . sad ending to a great trip

  8. snowflake - kathy doyle. NB Canada (20 Mar 2013 - 09:15)

    Is snowflake still living and if so how old is he or she??

  9. horaires d'été - Patrick (15 Aug 2012 - 14:15)

    l'horaire de fermeture en été n'est pas 21 heures mais 20 heures donc la publicité n'est pas exacte
    vous êtes acceptés jusque 19 heures au plein tarif bien entendu pour une heure de visite .....et la plupart des grands animaux sont invisibles car déjà rentrés dans leur box
    je trouve cela incorrect d'autant plus que ce zoo est grandet qu'il est impossible de le visiter en une voire deux heures

  10. ZOO BARCELONE - PIERRE (25 Jul 2012 - 10:30)

    Votre site induit en erreur les visiteurs du zoo en ce qui concerne les tarifs.
    A mettre à jour!!!

  11. merci aux personnes qui envoient leurs commentaires - valérie (7 Jun 2012 - 09:15)

    Pourquoi le site de ce zoo n' est il pas remis à jour ?En lisant vos commentaires
    j'apprend que " flocon de neige " est décédé depuis de nombreuses années;

  12. Snowflake - Will (1 Nov 2011 - 20:15)

    Is Snowflake still there??? We would like to go visit next year. I saw him 20 years ago.

  13. petit zoo - claude du quebec, (17 Oct 2011 - 19:45)

    c'est un petit zoo, les animaux sont dans des petits endroits ou petites cages, Ca vaut pas vraiment la peine d'y aller, ca coute 16.50 Euro

  14. The Barcelona Zoo - Finnish traveller (11 Sep 2011 - 11:15)

    There were some big animals, especially mammals (for example rhino, hippos, elephants) whose enclosures were too small. I think Barcelona zoo should focus on such species which are smaller, because the zoo is not very big. Otherwise the zoo seemed to be well-kept. Some visitors were feeding apes with candy - this should be forbidden.
