Make sure you save all of your individual tickets on the phone as they have to scan the barcode and if... 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

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
