Santo Inácio Zoo
Describing itself as Porto’s “biggest and greenest zoo,” Santo Inácio Zoo is home to around 600 animals representing some 200 species, including lions, snow leopards, cheetahs, camels, Humboldt penguins, and more. Close to Porto’s city center, it makes an easy and entertaining day out for the whole family.

The Basics
The zoo animals all live in spacious environments, designed to closely approximate their natural habitats. The zoo’s different environments include the African Savannah, where you can see giraffes, rhinos, wildebeest, zebras, and ostriches; the Tropical Greenhouse, home to various tropical birds including parrots; and the Reptile House, which houses more than 50 species of reptiles and amphibians. Visitors can also walk through the Asian lions’ habitat via a glass tunnel that offers a close-up, but protected, view.
