Barcelona Zoo & Aquarium

A short visit to Barcelona last week ended up to a overdose of culture and recovering from the symptoms in the zoo and the aquarium. I'll post some culture related photos later...


The zoo looked nice. It's not too big and there's a chance to see animals quite close although they could have more space. The aquarium is situated in a different place (not so far from the zoo) and worth visiting. The aquarium is one of the few tourist attractions in Barcelona which is open after 6pm.

P.S. In the zoo there should be the only known albino gorilla in the whole world - I missed it.
edit. No wonder I didn't see the white gorilla - it's dead!

Hmmm...the gorilla kinda died like 8 years ago....
He got 21 offsprings, none of them inherited his albino genes...

I didn't know the story of that albinos gorilla. I'm happy to know it now, even if it's too late to go visit him.

I didn't know the story either and I was disappointed because I didn't see him... until Anne-Laure told me the truth :(
