Faunia is a biological park (a botanical garden and a zoological park at the same time) covering some 140,000 square metres. Dedicated to nature, it offers visitors different ecosystems including the jungle, the polar regions and the African forests
It was opened on 10 July 2001, as the Biological Park of Madrid, but in 2002 its name was changed to Faunia.
Visitors need 4 to 5 hours to see Faunia, following the paths and signs posted along the route. In this way they can find out about fauna of the five continents from familiar farm animals to those living in polar regions, taking in animals which live in the jungle and finishing with those classified as poisonous. Along the route access to pavilions and areas where food and drinks are available are signposted, with an indication of the time needed to reach them.
Admission (adults): 25.95 euros
Children (3-7 years): 19.95 euros
Opening times vary depending on the season. The park is closed for several weeks in winter. See website.
