The Cabárceno Nature Park is not a conventional zoo or a natural park. It is a space naturalized by the hand of man. Starting from the primitive beauty of its karstic landscape, this park has been created on the 750 hectares of an old open-cast iron mining operation and we can say it is unique in the world. This place welcomes almost 150 species of animals from the five continents in a semi-freedom regime and are distributed in large enclosures.

The visit to the park will be done by minivan, but you will also have the opportunity to see it from the air with the cable car. During the visit, we will see a large variety of animals: gorillas, tigers, bears, elephants, etc. In addition, we will enjoy seeing the flight demonstrations of raptors, as well as a demonstration of sea lions.

Definitively, this is a pleasant and relaxed visit to the park designed for everyone.
