Jardim Zoológico de Lisboa

Opened in 1884, the zoological garden of Lisbon lodges, at present, about 2 thousand animals of 380 species. The main attractions are the dolphins’ bay that imitates a typical fishing village, the small farm where the country atmosphere is created, the reptilian with different kinds of reptiles’ species and the rope-way that takes you on a relaxed journey through the zoo, offering a lovely view of the gardens and the city. The space is full of life: it has shows with sea-lions, dolphins, reptiles and macaws, an amusement park-the Animax-equipped with cinema, video games, remote control boats and a large lake with a water fall.
