What a fantastic and vibrant city, full of superb architecture. The park with the Zoo in is superb and we spent quite a few hours there. It's better to see the city by foot as you would miss an awful lot on a bus. A city that we will certainly be visiting again for at least three days. (We were on a cruis so only had the day there)

If you have a few extra hours one day definitely put the zoo on your list of things to do. One of the better zoos I've been to. A wide variety of animals and the layout is easy to navigate. The seal show and dolphin show were fun.

We visited this zoo during our trip to Barcelona. Kids love this place. My boy was so excited to watch all these animals. This zoo is well maintained and clear. although we missed the popular Dolphin show but the trip is well worth it.

This is a very nice zoo and our two and four year old just loved it. The animals looked well cared for and the exhibits were very informative without being overwhelming. The down side is that the children's petting zoo area and all but one food kiosk were closed. Next time, snacks in a back pack are in order! Overall one of our favorite places during this visit.

We visited Barcelona zoo in May and we had a great time.

We don't really like the idea of zoos as we feel animals should be out in the wild but understand why we need them and to be honest this was one of the best that we have been to better than ones in the u.k.

There were many animals to see which all seemed happy and content and most of them had quite a lot of space although I didn't think that of the rhino and elephant there enclosures looked to small.

The dolphin show is good well worth watching but do check for times as it only runs a few times a day.

The enclosures are spread out so they are not packed in too tightly so it takes a while to get round. The is a restaurant on site selling the usual stuff at reasonable prices.

If we were back in the area we would visit again.
