    Here the "Cozido das Furnas" is cooked. A stew of vegetables, meat, salami and rice. He is buried in special containers in the hot earth and cooked there for several hours. The mineral-containing steam gives the dish its special flavor.

    Be sure to try Cozido! (Cooked chorizo, meat, pineapple blood sausage, vegetables and potatoes in the hot springs)

    The Caldeiras of Furnas on Lagoa do Furnas. At lunchtime, the Cozidos are brought here from the earth. Then there are a lot of tourists.

    To see everything bubbling and steaming I found totally exciting. The Portuguese also cook stew here. Nearby there is a parking lot (cheap).

    At the foot of the Caldeira is still the typical food Cozido das Furnas (a kind of stew) cooked in the ground by the heat of the volcano. Delicious.
