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 Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo. Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Poca Da Dona Beija). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Praia de Santa Barbara, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao, look for all kinds of wild species at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, and explore the activities along Furnas.

Plan my trip to Ponta Delgada with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Porto

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.
On the 13th (Tue), take in panoramic vistas at Torre dos Clerigos, admire the striking features of Palacio da Bolsa, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Douro River.
