Healing and relaxing properties

For centuries, the thermal waters of Furnas have been sought after for their remarkable healing properties. These therapeutic waters are known to offer relief for conditions like arthritis, rheumatism, asthma, bronchitis, skin ailments, and muscle pain. These healing benefits are attributed to the water's rich mineral content, optimal temperature, anti-inflammatory nature, and potent antioxidants. Additionally, these waters are renowned for their relaxing properties, providing a soothing remedy to alleviate stress and tension.

Skin benefits

Within Furnas Valley, there are over thirty distinct thermal water springs, each offering a unique composition. This diversity arises from the specific volcanic zones where they surface and the individual pathways they traverse, absorbing various minerals from the earth along the way.

Among these springs, the one that feeds the Parque Terra Nostra pool is particularly abundant in Magnesium, Iron, and Calcium. These enriching elements bestow the water with remarkable skincare benefits. The immediate regenerative sensation they provide elevates the therapeutic value of the Garden's thermal waters, making a visit to this rejuvenating oasis an essential part of any wellness itinerary.
