The Furnas Lake is considered the real ex-libris of São Miguel. Located at an altitude of 600 meters, this lake of volcanic origins is surrounded by vast vegetation and volcanic events that merge into a broad and harmonious landscape. The area of the Furnas Lake is also home to one of the most curious Azorean chapels, the Nossa Senhora das Vitórias Chapel, wich was commissioned by José do Canto, at the request of his wife, whre they currently are both buried.
