Faunia, Madrid

3.1
#1 of 6 in Wildlife in Madrid
Faunia, a botanical garden and zoo covering 14 hectares (35 acres), actually feels smaller and more interactive than a typical zoo. You’ll find all types of animals here, but highlights include an black agouti, several varieties of penguins, and a bat enclosure. Zookeepers give informative talks about manatees, Komodo dragons, and wallabies. Check the official website to see if an event coincides with your visit. The majority of installations are covered, so it’s a comfortable stop on both sunny and rainy days. Faunia is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Madrid Edition.

  • I have visited many animal theme parks and this is definitely the most expensive and the worst of all. Both the demonstration of birds and that of sea lions are light years away from sites such as Cabárceno or the biopark of Valencia. I would invite Faunia's managers to visit and see Cabárceno's demonstrations and see the differences with what they offer. I'd ask for my money back if I could. It also gives the feeling of taking money from all sides everything is sum and follow, photos, feed animals.....

  • Small park but highly recommended to go with children. Ecosystems are perfectly represented and children will have a great time. The only but, high prices of food and drink.

  • Still keeps the magic but getting dated. Would require a renovation as most attractions didn’t change for the last decade. It’s however a great place for the little ones and brings me lots of good memories of my children childhood. The jungle (with its hourly rain) is is still the best spot in the park. Beware there are many free parking options right around the park.
  • I liked very much the park. The queue in the restaurant is so big that you better bring your own food. Otherwise you will spend your time waiting in the queues instead of enjoying the park. The sea lions show is amazing. Just this show is woth the whole price of the ticket.
