Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel

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 Lagoa do Fogo and Furnas. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Poca Da Dona Beija). There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, kick back and relax at Praia de Santa Barbara, explore the fascinating underground world of Gruta do Carvao, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao.

For maps, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Ponta Delgada online driving holiday planner.

On the 15th (Mon), enjoy breathtaking views from Torre dos Clerigos, get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Douro River.

For other places to visit and other tourist information, use the Porto trip builder site.
