  • Small friendly zoo with of great playgrounds for children and a botanical garden. The zoo is small but it has interesting species: polar bear, giraffe, lion, hippopotamus, elephant, tropical aviary, House of mouse, Penguin, sea lions bald.. .all this to delight young and old. The rate is correct can it stings fuck or eat in the cafeteria. We easily spend a day. However the parking will cost 9 euros in the day.
