The Barcelona Zoo has one of the most important collections of animals in Europe, and is famous for having been home of the albino gorilla "Copito de Nieve". Its location was chosen when the park buildings became available after the Universal Exhibition of Barcelona in 1988. It was opened on ‘el día de La Mercè’, festival celebrating patron saint of Barcelona, with the first animals arriving from the private collection that Lluís Martí i Codolar had at his farm called "La Granja Vieja", in Horta. He donated the animals to the City council of Barcelona, who allowed them to move into the grounds of the Parque de la Ciudela. For years, from 1966 to 2003 to be precise, the star of the Zoo was the famous Copito de Nieve, the only known albino gorilla in existence. From the Parque de la Ciudadela, you have the best access to the Barcelona’s city centre travelling via Carrer de la Marina, from where you can reach any of the car parks mentioned above.
