Terra Natura


Terra Natura is an entertaining and educational trip through nature and the civilisations of the world in unique surroundings.

This leisure complex has a surface area of 32 hectares and it first opened it's doors to the public in 2004. Terra Natura is a new idea which allows the visitor to travel through, study and discover the Earth's eco-systems and civilisations.

The leisure complex will initially take guests on journey to 3 of the 5 continents (America, Asia & Europe), preceded by an entry zone inspired by the origins of the EARTH: Pangaea. Each area of Terra Natura represents one of the elements of Nature: Fire (Pangaea), Air (America), Earth (Asia) & Water (Europe).

Visitors will find exact replicas of the original landscapes with over 1,500 animals from 200 different species, 54 of which are in danger of extinction. One of the main attractions of the park will be the fact that any barriers between animals and the travellers are hidden to ensure direct eye contact between the two.

Terra Natura is not a typical Theme Park, it is a combination of history, culture, nature, leisure & entertainment and is unlike anything else in Europe.

The complex will have a full restaurant service (one table-service restaurant, one self-service, five fast food restaurants, five bars, four kiosks & three mobile stalls), themed craft shops & workshops used by different craftsman.
