Gruta do Natal

Gruta do Natal


The Gruta do Natal on Terceira island is considered ideal for enjoying a first contact with the different lava features that are to be found in the Azores, making it possible to enjoy the beauty and novelty that this type of natural phenomenon can provide.

During the Christmas season, the cave takes on a certain social importance for the community, for, whenever possible, the Christmas mass is held here. This explains the origin of its name (Gruta do Natal = Christmas Grotto).
