Lagoa das Furnas

Lagoa das Furnas is surrounded by abundant macaronesian vegetation and several volcanic phenomena such as the boiling hot springs and a sulfate smelling steam. The traditional Azorean stew, named ‘Cozido das Furnas’, is made on the margins of this lagoon, underground with the volcanic heat. Also, in the margins of this lagoon is one of the most curious chapels on São Miguel island, dedicated to Nossa Senhora das Vitórias, that was intended to be the mausoleum of José do Canto and was solemnly inaugurated in 15 of August of 1886.
