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.
Step out of the city life by going to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Poca Da Dona Beija. Change things up with a short trip to Parque Terra Nostra in Furnas (about 46 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Lagoa do Fogo, don't miss a visit to Portas da Cidade, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao, and explore the fascinating underground world of Gruta do Carvao.

To find other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Ponta Delgada visit planner.
