The Furnas valley has such extraordinary beauty that seems to have come out of a fairy tale!
Start by visiting the fumaroles and strolling around the lagoon, at the edge of which you will find the magnificent Nossa Senhora das Vitórias Chapel, a neo-Gothic style building that is considered one of the archipelago’s most unique temples.
Also visit Terra Nostra Park, which has a wonderful garden with one of the largest collections of camellias and two hot pools.
After a relaxing stroll, enjoy the famous Furnas meat stew in one of the area’s restaurants. This typical dish of São Miguel is cooked in a pot buried in the ground next to the Furnas boilers for 5 hours, which gives it a unique flavor.
In the afternoon, pass by the Dona Beija Pool, another ex-libris of the island, consisting of several natural pools of thermal hot water, flanked by a stream of warm water and a charming landscape.
Fly with us to the magical islands of the Azores!
