If you're in Madrid, and your family is split between visit an aquarium or a zoo. Consider visiting the Zoo Aquarium de Madrid - it's both zoo and aquarium!
Stretching out over 20 hectares in the Casa de Campo, this zoo is one of the biggest and oldest in Europe. It's home to over 500 different species of animals; there are big names (and animals) such as pandas, wolves, giraffes and white tigers, as well as lizards and many smaller mammals.
The 3,000 m2 Aviario (aviary) has more than 60 types of birds, including bald eagles, vultures, and condors. Catch a 'Birds of Prey' show to see them perform flight exercises like they're nature's stunt pilots.
If underwater adventure is more your style, the aquarium has one of the most impressive collections of coral in Europe. If seeing corals is not enough, there are plenty of colourful fish, single-minded sharks, and regular dolphin and sea lion shows guaranteed to make a splash.
With a broad array of furry, feathered, and scaly creatures, Zoo Aquarium Madrid is the perfect attraction for a family day out.
The zoo is open daily from 10:30 hrs.
