I reckon Faunia and the way that they show the animals are better than The Zoo, by far. There is no complainment in that respect. However, they should improve several things such as their prices and their services. I went there a month ago with my nephew and I had to get out since it was imposible to find a... More

beautiful place with a lot of benches to sit and admire nature. It is a city zoo that allows people to get in touch with nature and animals. I do recommend it specially if you have children, and you have time to spend. not a disappointment.

Faunia is not your average zoo. Surprisingly large area, there are no big animals that usually have very limited living spaces. The smaller, yet very interesting, animals there seemed to have very nice living spaces. The most exciting thing about this zoo is that you can walk among some of the animals, such as the small monkeys. We visited mid-October... More

Although it might be a little expensive, Faunia is defenitly worth the visit. As a frequent visitor of zoos all over Europe, I found myself to be more impressed by Faunia than I was with the Madrid Zoo. Faunia for one has a great Tropical rainforest building, with free-roaming monkeys and birds, simulated tropical rain storms and an awesome enclosure... More

This is a great place, has a couple of shows and they have a wide variety of animals. It's quite big, so take comfortable shoes. When it's really sunny can be a bit tiring so beware of that. Has plenty of little shops and kiosks, so that's great. My little one has great fun being photographed with animals and just... More

Although it had around 40 degrees in Madrid when we went there and we were a bit concerned that it might be too hot, our kids (9&7) were OK. Surprisingly at or with such temperatures, there were lots of other families (locals & tourists) with their kids visiting. The park itself has lots of activities outside and there is always... More

Having visited Madrid Zoo on two occasions and being very impressed I thought we should give somewhere else a try. Big mistake! The entry price is similar due to online booking but would actually cost more if pay on the day for what is a much worse experience. The amount of exhibits was greatly exceeded by the food outlets, gift... More
