Description:

The zoo of Quinquis is a unique place where animals and visitors come together and are in direct contact.

This castle mound and a stele of the iron age have been preserved and are explained to visitors.
The zoo is divided into several parts:
- The Quinquis: you walk into a space of 10 hectares wide where the animals are free. You will then see lemurs (monkeys of Madagascar), deers, and many other species,
- The educational farm: Most young people can come quite close to the animals of the farm such as sheeps, goats, pigs, ponies, donkeys, chickens, ducks ...
- The stele of the iron age and the hillock of the Quinquis, where you can see why KENKIZ means fortified castle,
- The entertainments, with the botanical path, the beehives, and the house of nature, the animal museum.
