Barcelona Zoo has one of the biggest animal collections in Europe, and is also well-known as the former home of "Snowflake", the albino gorilla.

Barcelona Zoo is in Ciutadella Park. It has one of the biggest animal collections in Europe, and is also well-known as the former home of “Snowflake”, the albino gorilla. The Zoo opened on the Day of La Mercè [Our Lady of Mercy] in 1892, in an area that had been part of the 1888 Universal Expo.

Over the years, the zoo has evolved, adapting to the demands of social reality, and has gradually placed greater focus and dedication on its main mission: research, conserving endangered species, educating and informing.

Zoos are now focused on preserving nature around the world and combating the loss of natural habitats, as they are reservoirs of biodiversity. Zoos are also places for family leisure and, therefore, an important part of the awareness-raising and conservation strategies for the most endangered wildlife species.

All the zoo’s installations are adapted for people with reduced mobility.
