Funded by donations, this rescue centre houses pets that turned out to be unsuitable to their owner’s ‘environment’ (including 2 Green Monkeys). Well worth a visit if you’re passing.

Well worth a visit, I particularly liked the lush Grass, supported by Sea Water. The Animals are "rescued", and are very healthy. For 1 Euro entry it is good value.

This little peace of paradise seems like the real Eden. Plants and animals live in perfect harmony. Each animals has its own personality: enjoy hugging the donkey or chatting with the parrots. They even have a chameleon and a Senegalese parrot living out free.
