First it is worth it for kids and adults alike. Some animals have paddocks and you can get really close to them and that is great for the little ones. I would buy tickets online... read more

We went by taxi from Gran Via and it cost us around 15€, not a bad price. The price for two adults was about 50€, a little on the expensive side, but if you book online its cheaper. There are loads of lovely animals to see and the shows were great. Some of the animals you can get realy close... More

Dear Traveler, We appreciate your recommendation and regret that you haven´t had occasion to know the Polar Ecosystem that is currently temporarily closed for improvement in its facilities. On the other hand, in spite of the supervision of our staff, the collaboration of the public is essential in the education and respect to the animal environment. Thank you again for... More

Difficult to reach via metro, but access via bus is an option. Well laid out, with a recommended route to help out. Book online for the best prices and be aware that not all food venues will be open. Our highlight was the manatee tunnel, but the sea lion show was amazing. All talks are in Spanish, but don't worry,... More

WOW! So much more interesting than Madrid Zoo. So many beautiful creatures to see up close, very clean and well kept grounds. Be prepared to walk for a few hours. However , there are clean benches everywhere for a rest. The bird show is amazing, 1000 times better than you may expect. I will not spoil the surprise but do... More

No family ticket, no discounts for off season. Hardly anyone there but still asking for full price ticket which would have come to 127 euros. Bought it online there and then at the entrance for 105! Inside many parts were shut and now shows i guess because no one there to show to. I wish there was a warning or... More

There is a great deal to do in this zoo which lacks the big animals of Madrid Zoo but makes up for it with the sheer volume . We followed the advised route around the zoo which worked well in terms of getting to the shows on time but does mean that you are in the crowd especially if you... More

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
