Photographer's Note

Furnas is famous for its springs and geysers.
Furnas has thirty springs, each of which has a different temperature and chemical composition.
There is a hot river which is colored by iron and a cold river which flows through the village.
The “Terra Nostra” Park, behind the hotel of the same name, is the most beautiful park on the island of São Miguel.
This 18th century park consists of small trails circling artistically groomed lakes, and streams, bushes of colourful and exotic flowers and century old trees of great botanical value.
A lake-pool of thermal iron water, dominated by the “Casa do Park” (Park House), the former summer home of its’ founder, Thomas Hickling, complements the intoxicating mood instilled by this incredible park.
Take a long bath in the pool with the yellow warm water (heaten up by the geotermic activity) - when you overcome the fact that the water looks like mud you will want to stay inside the pool for hours!
