  • We were the only visitors and had the park for us. We got a private tour. The staff was very friendly. The Park is great not only for children but also for adults. The best we found the mirror maze.

  • Located on the road, has parking inside. The ticket cost me $10. The visit to Centennial House was interesting and I found many objects of my childhood. The guide was friendly and accompanied me and my wife the largest portion of the tour. The fifth, in addition to the House, has farm animals, some places and objects related to the source of wealth of previous owners, a mirror maze, a gazebo and a small waterfall. Nice though think the ticket could be a little cheaper.

  • 10 E is too expensive how do so sloppy. Large piece of land but few attractions, places of cheesy and not refined. An interesting attraction is the large number of goats and Rams, which are very friendly. Visit the Museum-the impression of only Lady tour guide is medium positive. Park should pass specific "overhaul". In General, we were average.

  • Absolutely horrible place! I recently visited Parque da Mina having seen their grand house and happy looking animals on a leaflet I picked up in my hotel. I arrived to see that the animals were being kept in tiny dirt enclosures without any water, shelter or food! The temperature was approx 36 degree Celsius. Many of the animals were trapesing back and forth the fence of the enclosure- clearly agitated and stressed. The birds at the Parque (Pigeons, Geese, Chickens) seemed to be panting ( clearly in need of shade and water) ! Lots of the animals were fighting each other and not one animal looked happy to be there. The animals are only being used for tourist attraction ( and eggs in regard to the birds)! I was crying having seen the suffering animals and the experience wrecked my holiday. None of the animals had access to Food,Shelter or Water! THE SUFFERING OF THESE ANIMALS NEEDS TO STOP. My mother confronted one of the staff ( I couldn't I was still crying) and asked why the animals didn't have water and the staff answered that she couldn't speak English when she spoke perfect English when we paid to get in. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND PARQUE DA MINA TO ANYONE AS THE ANIMALS ARE BEING GREATLY MISTREATED. I HAVE GIVEN IT A RATING OF ONE STAR PURELY SO THAT I CAN POST MY REVIEW AS WITHOUT A STAR RATING I AM UNABLE TO DO SO.
