The zoo is nicely laid out and has a good selection of animal exhibits. The dolphin show was a particular highlight. Some of the animals (the brown bear in particular) look rather sad and could do with much better enclosures.

This is a magic place built inside the busy Lisbon city. It is still showing some of the elements that one made it a great place to visit. Yet it seems it stopped in time, with little or innefective investment to keep it in line...More

The metro goes right to the zoo. Walk across the street from the station and there it is.

You have the opportunity to take a picture with a sealion and tropical birds after specified show times. Of course, the petting (children's) zoo area is also available. The rest would be from the fence that separates you.
