Nice place to visit, was very hot as we visited in August. Great selection of animals. Nice places to get food, though a little expensive. Definately worth going through your rep for it as the rise there is two hours!!

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon at the zoo, the animals were being fed and were very lively, there were all kinds of animals and diff. species, felt a little sorry for the smaller monkeys in tiny cages, and all the wild cats shut up in such small seclusions. Very beautiful park, well organised, the only thing we didn't like was that for the price you pay (approx 54eu for a family of 4) they could have translated the dolphin show into other languages apart from spanish and nothing else!

We went here with our two kids, 4 and 2 years old. It was a little cold that day, but we had a great time anyway. The zoo is beautiful. It feels like you're walking in a parc and happend to stumble upon some animals. Some of the animals seemed a bit stressed and not to like it there. The kids didn't notice, but we the adults did. Other then that we had a wonderful day with the kids there. We met a very funny monkey that came and said hello before he smashed his poo on the window and ate it....... That's why monkeys have to be adorable, so they're still sweet when they do grose things..........
I recommend it to familys with children.

I went to see the zoo with my 3 year old and was quite disappointed. Firstly I was trying to get annual family membership that is relatively reasonably priced compared to individual tickets 20 eur. I tried to apply several time over the Internet without success. The second surprise was the price of the ticket considering rather small area. Once we walked in we tried to follow the map and find the animals. We could find some of them as they were moved due to many construction works undergoing in the zoo, however there is no sign to inform about this and point you to the right spot. The animal space is rather small and crowded. Most animals were asleep ( in the morning around 11). And last but not least - the place is pretty messy and not cleaned, this was my big surprise especially since I have seen much stuff running around. Also other sites in Barcelona and very well organised and well kept. Based on the visit we decided not to become members and most probably we won't be going back.

A bit pricey for the size of the zoo, but nice time there. a shame the white gorilla has passed away long ago...
