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.

  • We had a good time, and we saw animals we hadn't seen yet. We really liked the night animal area

  • I've always liked this park. I have already gone several times and would definitely repeat. If it is true that it is quite smaller than the zoo but that does not take away the great charm that it has.

  • Not particularly well signposted from the nearest Metro stop, obviously most people drive here. But it's worth a visit if you like zoos/animals. You'll get closer to animals here than most other zoos. From Lemurs to Kangaroos you can get right up close and personal. Nicely laid out, with some indoor and underground sections to get you out of the sun. It's not a very big area but you'll probably spend a good 2hrs or more here. Very quiet during August when we visited and unfortunately most of the restaurant areas were closed.
  • I love this place to come with children. It doesn’t feel like the traditional zoo, but more like a theme park. It’s full of exotic animals and shows over the day. It’s a great place to let children learn and love animals than normally the would never see.
