Furnas, Sao Miguel Island, Azores

A distinct and renowned feature of Furnas as one of the most active geothermal areas in Europe are the many geysers, hot springs and fumaroles around the village – an incredible sight to see! Just outside of the village at Lagoa das Furnas you will see many more hot springs and deep holes in the ground where local people cook “Cozido” geothermally (meat/veg stew) to serve in the village restaurants.
