Monthly Animal Festival at the Scuola Zoo


An Alpaca which Kisses Ladies Only and More at the Zoo

At Scuola, a closed-down elementary school which was renovated and turned into a restaurant and market, another feature very popular among families is the zoo at the same site. The small zoo houses seven kinds of animals, a total of 24 animals. The most famous one is an alpaca named Raul, who likes to kiss on the cheek of only ladies!

Touch Animals, Take photos with Them, and Try the Quiz!

At the Scuola zoo, twice a month, the Animal Festival, full of fun events for both children and parents, is held. Try guessing which one a winner at a guinea pig race or a food battle will be. Celebrate a birthday of the rabbit Sunny….and much more! Different events are planned for each festival day.
