Alqueva Natural Theme Park is a unique place of incredible natural beauty, where you can enjoy the nature, the cultures of two countries and the largest lake in Europe.
It is the first theme park which is natural and open. It has been designed to make the most of all the attractions of an area rich in natural and cultural resources and to integrate all the tourist alternatives in the region. It is the first natural theme park to be created in keeping with the principles of sustainable development and universal accessibility.
There are no gates, fees or opening hours. You can go to the park whenever you want and find numerous activities and events in keeping with your tastes and preferences.
Alqueva Natural Theme Park is an original and fascinating proposal for all ages, to be discovered by the whole family, as a group, with friends, with your partner, whenever you want.
You will be captivated by the beauty of the landscapes, the wealth of the Special Protection Area (SPA), where you will get the chance to see different types of birds, walk through eco-fluvial corridors, discover wonderful flora, visit the Extremaduran pastureland, where the Iberian pig and the Spanish fighting bull are bred, and enjoy marvellous adventures on water, by land and in the air.
We invite you to stroll through the streets of its towns to discover the culture of Extremadura and that of our neighbouring country and to visit interpretation centres, castles, museums and other places which will not fail to impress you.
The wealth and diversity of a land full of possibilities will open up before your eyes, with a main protagonist: the Great Lake of Alqueva. With its 1,200 kilometres of interior coastline, its waters fill the park with life and form the largest artificial lake in Europe, irrigating Spanish and Portuguese lands.
Diving into the waters of the lake for aquatic activities, fishing, exploring castles and mediaeval towns, paragliding, going on a photography safari, learning about Spanish-Portuguese culture, enjoying gastronomy with its own identity, either on the table itself or in its origins (on the pastureland and in the wine cellars, meat factories, drying areas, etc.), or a kind of cooking merging the Extremaduran and Portuguese cultures, capable of satisfying the most demanding palates, are just some of the activities you can enjoy in the park.
A whole host of sensations for the children, families, groups and individuals who come to the Alqueva Natural Theme Park to enjoy a magical and unforgettable experience.
