Bioparc – Zoo de Doué la Fontaine
Close to the Loire Valley, the BIOPARC of Doué la Fontaine is a world’s unique troglodyte site.
Located in a shelled sedimentary rock quarry, the park provides a completely immersive experience with its luxuriant vegetation, watered by numerous waterfalls. The falun, a regional typical sedimentary rock formed from marine deposits more than 11 million years ago, is a friable rock that enables the design of sceneries adapted to each species.
Covering 38 acres, the BIOPARC offers two geographically organised levels, based around islands and vast animal spaces.
The visit is unique and the troglodyte character of the site gives a fresh environment to teh site, pleasant during summer.
