It all began with a certain Luis Marti Codolar donating his animal collection to the City Council in 1892. Today, Zoo Barcelona is one of the most visited spots in Parc de la Ciutadella. Over 7000 animals from over 500 different species call this beautiful sanctuary their home. Exotic mammals like anteaters, hippos and mangabeys; enchanting birds like the black vulture and red front macaw; and fascinating amphibians and reptiles comprise the diverse selection housed amidst majestic Grevíl-lea and Om trees. The establishment's commitment to ecological conservation and preservation is hard to miss.
