The Barcelona Zoo is situated in the green heart of the historical center of Barcelona, located in Parc de la Ciutadella. This location was preferred because of its buildings that were empty after the Universal Exhibition (1888). The Zoo facilities reproduce the natural habitat of animal species living in it. It was opened on the day of the Merce.
The Zoo is an amazing place to visit with children and families, since it offers many activities for the little ones among us.
