Barcelona Zoo is in Parc de la Ciutadella. It has one of the biggest animal collections in Europe, and is known for having been the home of the albino gorilla “Snowflake”. The Zoo opened on La Mercè (Our Lady of Mercy) Day in 1892, in a space that had been part of the Universal Expo in 1888.

Its mission now is to preserve nature around the world and fight against the loss of natural habitats, as much as biodiversity reserves. At the same time zoos are places for family leisure and, therefore, an important part of the strategy of awareness raising and conserving the wildlife most under threat. During all these years the Zoo has gradually evolved and adapted to the social realities as required, and reinforced its focus on and dedication to its main mission: research, the conservation of species in danger of extinction, education and informing people.
