The lake of Furnas was formed at the bottom of a volcanic crater. On its outskirts are many geysers, hot-springs and fumaroles.
The people here have a really unique dish called Cozido. It’s composed mainly of vegetables, some meat, sausages and rice which doesn’t sound peculiar but they have a special method to cook this dish. They place the pot into a hole and let the dish cook by volcanic heat. Because of this there are many covered holes scattered around the lake like many mole hills.
Just a short walk and you can see Furnas Lake from above.
