Last Friday the 29th, before great expectation, “the largest Christmas theme park in Europe” was inaugurated in Lisbon, as announced in the advertising of this great theme park called Capital do Natal.
The facilities, open until January 12 at the Passeio Maritimo de Alges de Oeiras, were created expressly to experience the atmosphere and spirit of Finnish Lapland , to create the home of Santa Claus in a climate more grateful than those experienced in nordic lands.
However, the first visitors to the park have begun to show images on social networks that do not correspond to thebeautiful photos with which Capital do Natal announced that it would be the largest complex of attractions dedicated entirely to the Christmas theme.
The state of the animals has been one of the reasons for complaints from users who have used their profiles on networks to spread photos in which the reindeer supposedly do not enjoy the most suitable living conditions.
These photos are from Capital do Natal, a Christmas theme park in Lisbon, and these are the conditions in which the animals are kept there. Spread the word to see if we can get the animals back to their habitat #CapitalDoNatal #Lisboa pic.twitter.com/2ncwzw3G4u

The Union of Consumers of Extremadura (UCE), for example, has already received more than a hundred complaints within a few hours of its opening in relation to the Christmas theme park opened in Lisbon, considering that there has been misleading advertising, ” since reality has nothing to do with what was advertised”.

Visitors to the Capital do Natal park are leading these complaints through actions such as the creation of an Instagram account where you can see all the images taken in the park that are nothing like the idyllic ones from its promotional campaign.
On the same platform, however, we find bucolic pictures with a full Christmas light display and satisfied smiles among all types of public, as well as spectacular photos with ice as the protagonist.
