Furnas is a very charming little old European style city. There is a quaint little 'park' type area where you can walk among the gardens and see a pretty mad-made waterfall.

The inverted house is a nice idea, added as attraction, Mostly no parking can be found near by, park at the corner where the buses park.

We stayed in Furnas for our weeks vacation. It was close to quaint restaurants, Caldeiras and Terra Nostra Gardens with not only a beautiful garden but also multiple thermal pools.

A must see in San Miguel. Taste the wonderful meal cooked for seven hours in the volcanic rocks. Precede that treat with a dip in the hot sulphur springs. Your bones will appreciate the experience.

It is on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. We flew directly from England but I understand there is a flight to Ponte del Garda ( the capital ) from Faro. Furnas is about a 40min taxi ride away from that airport. Well... More
