  • It was worth a visit for the tour of the house and the views. The animals seemed to be a bit of an afterthought and not in the best way. They could certainly do a lot more with the space they have.  more »

  • Um local encantador, sítio fantástico para passar o dia.
  • 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.
  • Spectacular
  • Deserves a visit. All well arranged and the employees were all very attentive. With a few more things and passes if it all day long. We like! Don't leave without visiting the House of mirrors and feed the Yes. ;)

  • A great place to visit with kids. At the entrance you can buy for € poketik with feed for animals and feed the goats, donkey and pony. No exotic animals haven't but Park is a beautiful, very well maintained.
