  • Site free and ideal for a stroll through a park with great views. It has a small zoo with seals and penguins in an exceptional environment

  • We came after eating, with one more than acceptable temperature and the first thing we did was ride the Madaleno, a small tram discovered that with audio guide was showing us all that there is, then we were watching the Palace and what were the Royal Mews, and out enjoy the sea zoo and different boats that there are exposed.

  • See animals, watch the sea, get lost in the forest, see the Palace. If you have children, going to the Park. If you have luck and the time it is accompanied, then it is something exceptional.
