We went to Furnas to see the area and the town. We visited the area where they cook the food in a volcanic hole, walked around and went to the springs before going to a restaurant that served Portuguese stew cooked inside the volcanic holes....More

The town of Furnas is known for its hot springs, which are indeed lovely to soak in, as well as it's small bubbling calderas which are intriguing to see. Just as much worth the visit are the gardens near the hot springs, with all manner...More

This town has plenty to see an do. The gardens and riverside walks, the hot pools, the fumaroles, restaurants and bars. You can easily spend time for lunch and the best part of half a day exploring.

This picturesque little town makes the most of the naturally occurring hot springs, and has developed itself as a holiday / walking / health resort. As you might expect this tidy little town has many restaurants, cafes, and drinks stalls with a variety of catering...More

I have visited Furnas three times and had the pleasure of staying at two of its excellent hotels. What makes Furnas so appealing is the fact that the town (village) lies within the confines of a volcanic crater which is still active. Minutes away from...More

We visited Furnas during a day tour and were so happy to see everything in the area including the caldeiras and the upside-down structure. It was really somewhat other-worldly to stroll around the calderas and boiling waters. Be sure to stop even if you have...More

Beautiful country to get to Furnas. The tour was Furnas with the provided lunch. Lunch was not a snack, but a full-meal-deal with wine. The lunch (3-4 different meats, vegetables, bread, butter) along with wine of the region was so good! And you can drink...More

Furnas is a really special place, surrounded by mountains. It actually sits on an old volcano crater, which is now a wonderful garden with flowers and trees. Very interesting to see the caldeiras there, the fuming and boiling hot termal waters coming out from the...More
