One of the most active thermal locations on Earth, the Valley of Furnas is a volcanic crater which has been dormant since 1630, the date of the last eruption. The most popular attraction for most visitors to Furnas is no doubt the thermal baths. Furnas possesses several establishments where it is possible to enjoy the benefits of water from the interior of the earth, charged with minerals, among them being the thermal pool of Terra Nostra Park. Entrance is free for guests of the Terra Nostra Garden Hotel to use 24 hours a day or approx. 12 euros (Oct 2018) for day visitors to use (day time hours only).
You can add extra nights in Furnas to your itinerary staying either at the Terra Nostra Garden Hotel **** or our private house right in the centre of the village.
