  • There was wholesale written that the park was open, at the reception was a sign that you are tempted to just be patient. When there was no one still being present at after 15 minutes we are on our steps returned!

  • We drove past and thought we would give it a try. A very interesting old house, 300 years old, with lots of rooms set out as they might have been all those years ago. Not good for 70 year olds with a ...  more »

  • 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.
