São Miguel Island
São Miguel is the largest island in the Azores archipelago, in Portugal. It is known for its volcanic landscape, flora and marine life. The volcanic origin is present in the typology of rocks and terrains of “biscuit” (produced by undulating layers of lava) and “mysteries” (by spongy lavas, where mosses and herbs proliferate) – typical of the archipelago -, and sulphate fumaroles permanent ones, such as those in Vale das Furnas and Ribeira Grande.
The crater bottoms of ancient extinct volcanoes serve as a bed for beautiful lakes such as Lagoa das Sete Cidades, Lagoa do Fogo, and Lagoa das Furnas. This combination of factors makes the Vale das Furnas reputable for its medicinal-mineral waters. Find out more
