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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Centro de Monitorizacao e Investigacao das Furnas and Igreja de Sao Miguel Arcanjo.

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.

There's still lots to do: learn about winemaking at Pocas Vinhos, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I.
