Visit Granja de Avestruces to see the largest ostrich farm in the country. Meet these leggy birds on this family-friendly free-range farm, where other residents include llamas, goats, and horses. Kids can enjoy feeding the animals and burning off some energy on the playground. The ostriches have an organic diet, and the onsite restaurant serves up their eggs as well as their meat (if the thought turns your stomach, just stick with the farm).

  • Some might think it's a tad small, however, it does exactly what is says in the tin. A really good Ostrich farm and that's it. Staff were all very polite, friendly and helpful, there's a beautiful little train that takes you into the farm from the ample car park. The staff doing the guided tour are actually very knowledgeable, you can tell they're very involved and passionate about their work with the animals. The video presentation before the actual meet with the animals is quite informative and interesting full of fun facts. The animals are very well kept and very friendly. I was amazed at how strong and agile they are. An overall great experience for the whole family.
  • It was my first time seeing and eating ostrich, the place is beautiful, but could use better cooks. The food isn't bad, it's just that it doesn't live up to the hype.
