As the busy capital of São Miguel, Ponta Delgada represents the most visited place on the island. Known for its historical buildings, the city offers 17th- and 18th-century convents and churches, as well as cobbled pedestrian streets and hidden squares.
Visiting Praia de Santa Barbara and Caldeira das Sete Cidades will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Poca Da Dona Beija). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao, identify plant and animal life at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, and don't miss a visit to Portas da Cidade.
