The first thing you’ll notice when you get to Parque Biológico de Gaia is the giant dinosaur in the parking lot. Well and truly welcomed, you’ll be at the start of the three-kilometre trail that’ll lead you through the home of about 700 species of wild animals and plants, spread over 35 hectares of pure nature. This is the first permanent centre for environmental education in the country, and you’ll be able to spot otters, deer or cranes, herons and owls. The best part is that most of the animals currently living there were rescued from situations of illegal possession, abuse or ill treatment. They therefore lead a much better life now. During your visit, you can stop for lunch in the picnic area or at the park cafe or restaurant, set in a lovely garden. The children will love it.
