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.
Escape the urban bustle at Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Praia de Santa Barbara. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Poca Da Dona Beija). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, look for all kinds of wild species at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao, and Head underground at Gruta do Carvao.
