Butterfly Park Empuriabrava is a small tropical zoo with more than 20 years of
dedication. It is situated on the Costa Brava in a region of natural and cultural
richness, between three natural parks: the Aiguamolls de l’Empordá to the south, the Cap de Creus to the east and the Albera Natural Park to the north. In a 2.000m2 greenhouse we have recreated a tropical rainforest where butterflies,
parrots and many other animals are the protagonists. The exotic plants are
fundamental in maintaining the right conditions and a balanced ecology for our
Some of the curiosities which you may encounter are, among others, the world’s
largest butterfly, Attacus atlas; the biggest pigeon Goura victoria; Red-necked
wallabies and the Mexican blind cavefish.
Most of our feathered friends were donated as we are slowly converting to a
sanctuary for birds that cannot be reintroduced to the wild.
Our aim is to sensitise the visitors to the importance of butterfly and habitat
conservation as well as to educate about the issues of having a bird as a pet, they are not meant to spend their lives in a cage.
