The Lisbon Zoo

The Jardim Zoológico (Lisbon Zoo) opened to the public 133 years ago and was the first park of its kind on the Iberian Peninsula. The zoo hosts 2,000 animals from over 300 different species, from all corners of the planet. Dolphins, Sea Lions, Reptiles, and Birds in Free Flight shows are daily, but varying by season. Lisbon Zoo also features The Animax, which is on the zoo premises but outside the animal area. It’s an amusement area with a carousel, restaurants, and shops.
