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

Dear guest, for the arrival of Steller's marine lions, the exhibition of marine mammals has been modified temporarily and we offer educational chats to present them in the first phase of adjustment. Following this same line of education, the sample bird has moved to the new flight prairie, where the public can enjoy its majesty in a natural and open... More

We went here as it was part of our annual pass. It is a really nice place to visit but the teenagers in our group got bored quite quickly. I think it is more suited to a younger age group to be honest lots of colourful birds to look at and pretty gardens but thats about it the food and... More

We have gone several times to Faunia. The last time we renewed our annual pass. And that was a test of patience. More than 2 hours in two queues, the first with only 4-5 people before us, and the second may be 6-7. Personnel is so slow that the renewal was really a big waste of time. Inside, we found... More

we arrived just after 11am & easily kept busy till after 4.30pm with a 2 year old even though it was a quiet day with no shows going on. The range of animals is impressive, with lots of information about them. The varied habitat areas were great. The animals were all relaxed & it was lovely to see them in... More

Not a lot of big animals but each exhibit is designed to make adults and children enter into the habitat of the animals. In some cases you can walk with the animals. Best: Penguin habitat and the Jungle!

Faunia is no regular zoo. The animals are shown in their natural habitats and there are many rare species that you don't usually see. The park is very well organized. I especially liked the info boards - it can take you more than 5 hours to go through all the information about the animals held there. I also enjoyed the... More
