The zoo in Barcelona is located in the city park. Ranked among the top zoos in Spain, has open enclosures, allowing you to almost touch the animals. There is a infant zoo where children can be introduced to various animals.
A train runs round the park or you can hire an electric buggy if you wish. As well as a wide selection of animals and birds, the zoo offers special displays of reptiles such as iguanas and chameleons. The zoo was founded in 1892 and is one of the oldest and most modern in the world. The zoo prides itself on its humane facilities and habitats for the wild animals. The dolphins appear to be very content and love to perform at the glass windows of the pool. There are also regular displays in the indoor aquarium where members of the audience are invited to interact with the dolphins. Expect to get wet if you sit at the front.
