We know that children have their own agenda for holidays and that parents should be prepared to meet their preferences. Barcelona offers many options of amusement for children that parents can also enjoy.


In the park of Ciutadela is the zoo, which opens every day of the year. Children will be charmed with the hippopotami, the gorillas, tigers, elephants, dolphins, penguins, and discovering other lesser-known animals  as the Iberian wolf, the capibara or the red frog of Madagascar.
