This a good place to visit, nice and small. A lot of different activities, and with new areas also. I know this place for more than 30 years, and it's always a pleasure to return and see some changes...

The zoo is approximately a 10-15 walk from Parque Maia Metro Station. Entry for an adult was 7.50€ (in October 2017). The zoo is ‘smallish’ compared to some zoos. Although we still walked around the site in 2.5 hours. In my opinion, the zoo itself...More

This zoo has some amazing animals, such as lions, tigers and a brown bear! You can also get very close to them unlike many zoos in the UK. It's just a shame how small some of the enclosures are, and how little shade is offered...More

If you're visiting the area with kids it's a nice place to spend your afternoon. The zoo is a bit small but hardly crowded and I'm sure kids will like the experience.

This zoo is perfect for small children. You can see the animals from close up. There are many picnic places and a small play area.
