“The Nature Park of Cabárceno is not a conventional zoo nor a natural park. It is a space naturalized by the hand of man, from the primitive beauty of its karstic landscape, on the 750 ha of an old open-cast mine. Life is developed in the most natural environment possible for the animals that inhabit it. It is conceived for educational, cultural, scientific and recreational purposes, having become one of the major tourist attractions of northern Spain. It is an ideal place to spend the day with the family as it has many recreational areas, picnic areas, viewpoints, botanical routes, cafes, restaurants, children's playground etc.....”
