Furnas is a definite yes! Absolutely incredible to see water boiling up from the ground! Sulphur smells strong but well worth visit and a must to try the Portuguese Stew cooked in the ground!

We basically went there for lunch and ended up visiting the town/village and were pleasantly surprised with all the little gardens around almost every corner. We weren't there for long, but there seems to be a lot to see and it's pretty quiet and peaceful.

Bad smell but fascinating. Forrest around is like from jurrasic park or a fairytail. The food the cook with the heat of the volcanic activity is very basic and ruff.

Nice small park in the city of Furnas with geothermal springs. If you are in São Miguel, it's a must.
