Faunia

Faunia is a zoo and botanical garden in Madrid. It perfectly combines various ecosystems with a traditional zoo. The theme park has over 700 animal species and over 1,000 plants.

The main difference between Faunia and Madrid Zoo Aquarium is that this theme park is divided into areas that represent 15 different ecosystems.

Our favourite ecosystems

The Arctic ecosystem

This area has hundreds of penguins in a freezing environment, which swim, eat and glide on ice as if they were in their natural habitat.

The Jungle

Visitors will be able to meet all the Jungle animals in this unique ecosystem that even reproduces the humid heat and rain of a tropical storm. This is an excellent part of Faunia, but beware the small monkeys, as they can sometimes steal your belongings! 

The Night

This area is pitch black and you’ll be able to observe bats, owls, lynx and other nocturnal animals.

Don’t miss the shows

Birds of prey show, sea lion show or meeting some of the Park’s newborn animals…these are just some of Faunia’s most popular exhibitions. You will be given a timetable with all the shows at the Park’s entrance, so you don’t miss any of your favourite shows.

To conclude, if you are travelling to Madrid with children, you will love Faunia. It’s not to be missed. There aren’t as many animals as in the Madrid Zoo Aquarium, but it is a more educational experience.
