About
Biological Park of Lousã Mountains has been a benchmark as an example of good practice within the social entrepreneurship. The natural environment is a protected environment, naturally integrating that, on one hand, aims the conservation of species / indigenous breeds; on the other, the social commitment to cohesion by creating employment / occupational activities for people suffering exclusion, long-term unemployed, people with disabilities and / or chronic illness, integrating them into everyday work in the park, promoting equality and human dignity, promoting biophilia and passion for nature. Besides the zoo, Foundation ADFP (the Park´s owner) has built a restaurant, which promotes the traditional food of our region; an Eco-museum with old mills, irrigations systems and bread making machines; wine museum; cheese and pudding factory to promote women´s jobs and traditional products; a 4 star hotel integrated in nature; “Space of Mind” a museum which guides the tourist from the firsts

The animal park is well organised, with the animals living in the natural environment. We have been many times and always enjoy it

Depressing
Sep 2018 • Friends
I visited this place with a group on a hot day in September
After reading the other reviews I can’t understand why they are all so positive
I saw the bears clearly showing signs of repetitive behaviour in an enclosure without much stimulation for them
There were nocturnal animals like miserable looking owls and badgers kept in enclosures with nowhere for them to hide presumably so they are on display all day for the customers.
Two dogs in an enclosure one of which looked unhealthy and miserable
Various other beautiful animals looking bored and miserable kept in what in my opinion were unsuitable conditions
On the whole a depressing visit with my views shared by all of our group of six people.

A zoo
Aug 2018
Caged animals. Lots of empty areas. Beautiful setting. But ultimately this is a mediocre zoo. How does it have 4 stars?

A shaded sanctuary in a beautiful setting.

The philosophy here supports animals and people alike,the staff are welcoming and clearly love the animals they nurture. The park is mainly under the shade of ancient woodland.The gardens and walk ways are maintained well.

A big restaurant, easy to find with pleasant English-speaking staff. Seasonal Portuguese food, game and fish excellent. Good wine and spirits selection. Home made sweets. The menu is extensive and changes frequently. Pleasant surroundings. Open on Christmas Day.

Equine training show
Jun 2017 • Couples
We saw a poster advertising this show at the Bio Park of a Sunday and visited. There is a stable and show grounds there. There were several vans & horse trailers in attendance with their students and horses for the show.

There is also a park with walking trails and animals dotted along the path. We did not take the walking tour but will in a couple of weeks. Of interest are shops that teach weaving, pottery making, something else and a small restaurant. Further up the hill is a new hotel of which we will stay shortly.

We very much enjoyed ourselves and the kind Portuguese gave us some folding chairs to watch the hunter competition.

These are pictures of the posters but not the grounds.

Hi my friends
After a great meal it was time to watch the animals.
All the animals space was well care.
The rangers managed to show the fox cab.
At the end we look the farm animals and my stepdaughter ride a pony.
I will come back I love animals and was a great family time.
Regards
