Whole zoo was full of apathetic animals. Mostly all animal areas were not well taken care of and they were very small ones. Never ever go there, this place shoud be closed totally.

The kids expected to see the dolphins show but after the entrance they informed us that there is no show ...Half of the zoo was under constraction....If you don't have anything else to do...then go to the zoo...otherwise it's a waste of time and money

If you're in Barcelona for more than a few days, the zoo is a good place to go. You need a couple of hours to see it all, but it's fun and you can see loooots of animals. Must see if you have kids!

Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and
clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an
impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica.
Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local
fish to the various restaurants running along the
marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above
serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned
Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs

It's about a 1 hour drive down the coast to get to Zoo! You will not be disappointed! Take some munchies if your gonna do trip! Eating is pretty limited. Super fun! Great displays! Lots of kids having time of life! Enjoy!
