If you're visiting with kids, this is the place to visit in Madrid! My kids enjoyed it. They liked the shows and the different ecosystems presented in this place.

Faunia is a great experience. We had our son's 7th birthday party there and the kids had a lot of fun. The venom attraction and the "jungle" are the ones we liked most, as well as the sea lion show. Food is ok, typical fast food from a park. To find it, put in your GPS Avenida de las Comunidades,... More

Faunia is quite hard to find (even by car), and you do need to book online in advance otherwise it's quite pricey, but it's well worth a visit. The penguin attraction is huge, with a great range of different penguins (far, far better than the London Aquarium). The venom attraction has the largest display of poisonous snakes, spiders and frogs... More

We loved this park. It's quite different to your 'traditional' zoo...it doesn't have the usual lions, elephants, etc. Rather a variety of smaller animals a lot of which you can walk right near them and interact with them too. We even had little monkeys jumping on us at one point! Needless to say our 16month old son loved it and... More

For a young family, it's a great escape from the city, and yet so close. On a Thursday afternoon there was hardly anyone there. We missed the crocodile feeding at 2.30pm so they were all sleeping when we saw them. We arrived quite late in the afternoon so didn't see the full extent of the park, but did see a... More

This park was advertised as an ecological nature reserve and this is why I chose to go there. This doesn't appear to be the case at all. The animals are kept in tiny, and dirty enclosures. It made me very sad to see. I saw large birds of prey chained to the ground and crocodiles kept in tiny pools of... More

I went to this park because I believed from reading reviews that it was a nature reserve, an ecological Sanctuary for animals. I was very mistaken. When you first enter faunia, it seams fine. The animals look like they have room to roam. Then I encountered an owl, vulture and eagle chained up on a very small chain and small... More

The park is nice & not too big, a family can enjoy a relaxed 4-5 hours over there The highlight for sure is the show of the birds & sea lions Public transportation to the park is quite complicated...

My husband, 7 year old and I enjoyed this park. We were there for 4 hours and didn't finish the entire park. You could spend a day here. Very clean, animals in good health (unlike the reviews of the Madrid Zoo I read), interesting exhibits. If you buy your tickets online the day before you visit, you will save 6euros... More

We were 3 adults and 1 12-year old. The dinosaurs section was fun. We saw chickens hatching. The penguin exhibit was the favorite for all of us. It was hot and there was no shade. Wear a hat and get there early. There are hats to purchase at the entrance and plenty of places to eat and purchase cool drinks.... More
