If you plan to spend your holidays in Barcelona soon, especially with your family with children, several places in the city are not to be missed during your stay. Indeed, this city has several sites of interest that will certainly appeal to both young and old people who accompany them. Among Barcelona’s must-see attractions is the Barcelona Zoo, since the vast majority of children are often fascinated by animals. It is the same for the exceptional Aquarium of Barcelona which will surely impress the small ones with its submarine tunnel. Otherwise, do not forget to have fun in the Tibidabo Amusement Park where you will have breathtaking views of the city and its surroundings.
Barcelona Zoo Park
If you are staying in Barcelona with children, the Barcelona Zoo in the Ciutadella Park is a must. Especially since it is considered among the most beautiful in Spain. Indeed, this park is a point of honor to reconstruct as closely as possible the natural habitat of the animals it houses. In addition, the presentation of animals to visitors has been specially designed and thought to be almost accessible while ensuring safety through large pits or fences among others.
Moreover, given the area (about 14 hectares) covered by Barcelona Zoo, it is possible to rent small electric cars that will spare children to travel big distances and avoid tiring them. In addition, the young can also participate in various workshops organized by this zoo to put them in contact with farm animals and become familiar with them, especially with rabbits or donkeys.
If you have visited the Barcelona Zoo with your family to discover several terrestrial animal species, the Aquarium of Barcelona is one of the must-see places to visit with children to admire the underwater world for its myriad marine species. In fact, it is one of the most impressive aquariums in Europe for the exceptional wealth of Mediterranean fish species found there.
Indeed, during your visit to the Aquarium of Barcelona, you will have the opportunity to find more than twenty aquariums in which no less than 450 different marine species are sheltered. For example, head to the extraordinary Oceanarium, which contains up to 4 million liters of water and is crossed by an underwater tunnel. The latter is particularly about 80 meters long which will allow children to admire the underwater world as observed during a scuba diving. In addition, do not miss the oceanarium shark feeding time for a unique show. However, it is not always advisable for children to look at this attraction, which could possibly offend their sensitivity.
Tibidabo Amusement Park
Amusement parks are certainly one of the most popular places for children to have fun. In this sense, during your stay in Barcelona with your family, it would be a shame not to visit Tibidabo amusement park, which is one of the most popular in the city. Especially since its attractions are suitable for all ages, ideal for a relaxing family day! Although it is one of the oldest in the Catalan capital with attractions that date back a bit, this park has even recent attractions.
During your visit to the Tibidabo amusement park, choose the attractions that will allow you to admire the landscape as it is installed on a mountain of the city. Thus, in addition to the sensations provided by the roller coaster or the Ferris wheel for example, you will have the chance to have a breathtaking view of Barcelona and its surroundings. Moreover, the children will be more than delighted to make the attraction “Mina d’Or” during summer that will allow them to get wet a little. Children will float aboard a log-shaped boat along a course with some sensational descents with guaranteed splash of water.
