Barcelona zoo - Barcelona

The zoo of Barcelona was created in 1892 with the collection of animals belonging to Luis Martin i Codolar who gave it to the city of Barcelona. It is located in the Ciutadella park, a magnificient place built on the site of an ancient XVIIIth century stronghold. Amid the 400 species, the absolute star was Copito de nieve (snow flake), the only albinos gorilla known who passed away in 2003. He was the emblematic symbol of the institution and still has a significant role. The zoo contains a great number of remarkable species such as primates, the Iberian wolf, the Sumatra tiger, The Sri Lanka leopard and some rare bovines like the bongo and the anoa.
