Right between the larger volcano of Graciosa Island and the sea, overlooking Ilhéu do Carapacho, this thermal waters have been used to treat rheumatic, liver and skin diseases since around 1750 and works now together with the Portuguese Rheumatic Institute that ensures doctors at the facilities. All treatments are accompanied by certified therapists specialized in the medical treatments preformed. The water comes from a spring from an aquifer underlying the Furna do Enxonfre (Sulphur Cavern) and emerges at about 40ºC. Immersion baths are the most common treatment and Termas do Carapacho has 16 individual cabins for more private treatments. There is also one larger Jacuzzi for a family or group experience and a pool to enjoy all the benefits of these waters. Other treatments include Scottish and Vichy shower. Floating in (e) motion is an innovative technique that combines the benefits of the thermal waters with exercises preformed by a therapist.
