The Gallurose Park Animal Park

An oasis for discovering Tuscan peasant life and the animals that are a part of it

Bibbona

This park opened in 2001 on the site of a local family farm which dates back to 1770 . Its primary aim is to allow people—and especially children--to learn about animals from close-up. Since its opening it has evolved into an animal centre, but it still operates as a family farm which raises exotic and native Tuscan animals on its 5000m of land.

 

 

 

The park offers more than 3kms of pathways which allow visitors to observe over 180 races of animals, from hens to ostriches and from donkeys to zebras. More than 10,000 different types of plants, both Mediterranean and international species, flourish here. A stroll through the park brings you in contact not just with these plants and animals, but also with traditional farm equipment and—at the restaurant—with dishes from the local tradition.
