Come and discover where the four-legged and finned inhabitants of Lisbon live. The zoo’s aim to conserve habitats has been very successful in helping to reproduce species.
Lisbon Zoo, opened in 1884, is one of the most pleasant and interesting places to visit in Lisbon. Besides the efforts made to create increasingly natural habitats for the various species, their conservation and study programmes have produced good results. The offspring which are born here are always cause for national celebration. The park, which also promotes the conservation of countless plant species, is therefore a place where families go to have fun, learn something new and feel the absolute calmness of one of the busiest parts of the city. Discover the Zoo, which has reinvented and repositioned itself and evolved from an exotic animal showcase to one of the most active forces in animal and habitat conservation.
