The Bioparc Valencia is a zoo, located in the northwest of the city. But this isn't just any kind of zoo -- it's an immersion zoo, which means it removes or hides many of the barriers most zoos put in place between different species, including the humans. Species that naturally (and safely) reside together in the wild are placed together, while other gentle species, like lemurs for instance, are free to meet humans face to face, without any barrier. Other barriers are simply hidden to give visitors the feeling of being out in the wild.

Keep in mind the Bioparc's rules concerning the animals: They shouldn't be touched or fed, nor should they be disrupted by yelling or flash photography. Other than that, use your common sense: No jumping over the fence to meet the tigers.

To get there, you can walk along the old Turia riverbed in the direction of Parque de Cabecera or take the metro, jumping off at the Nou d'Octubre stop. Buses # 7, 17, 29, 61, 81 and 95 will also take you to the Bioparc.
